Allevare Heathcote Teroldego 2023

$ 34.00 incl. GST


Grown by Chalmers, one of their newest Northern Italian varietals. First mentioned in the late fifteenth century, Teroldego has long called Trentino (north-east Italy) home.

This was handpicked, and destemmed into 1 tonne fermenters. Mainly rack and returns once a day with light pump overs towards the end of ferment. Very limited amount made with one French puncheon and one barrel, in oak for 10 months before bottling.

A fresh, light to medium bodied fruit driven style here.  Aromatics of blackberry fruit and leaves, cranberry and a thread of smoked charcuterie.   Fresh blackberries, violets and forest berries run though the palate, though what defines this is its lacy, pinpoint tannins.  Bright with enough in the structure and savoury balance to nudge up complexity, an accessible and tasty introduction to this grape.
