  • Cantina Terlano Chardonnay 2021

    £18.99

    “Pretty florals, green apples and hints of mint waft up from the 2021 Chardonnay. This washes across the palate, deeply mineral in style, with tart orchard fruits and zests of lime that add further tension. It tapers off with a salty flourish while leaving nuances of sour melon and spice lingering. Drinking window: 2022-2025. 88 points

    From top to bottom, the Terlano portfolio continues to be one of the brightest shining stars within Alto Adige. The Tradition line is priced remarkably well for the value it represents, seeking to provide a pure expression of variety and terroir. Readers can get a very good feel for the region and house style of these crisp, transparent yet wholly satisfying wines. As you work your way up to the Sauvignon Blanc Quarz and Winkl, you’ll find a deep and prestigious expression of the varietal from the first and a younger yet richer and easier drinking one from the latter. The Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg seems to be fighting to compete with the best whites of Burgundy. If I had to point out any weak point in the portfolio, it would be the two Lagreins, yet this is splitting hairs as these deep expressions simply don’t communicate their price point to me; that said, I’d never turn down a glass. The real highlight of their portfolio is their Terlaner blends. At the entry level, the Terlaner Cuvée, is a serious wine that over-delivers. The Terlaner range blends Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to varying degrees, starting with the Terlaner Riserva Nova Domus, a showstopper, and then moving up to the Terlaner Grande Cuvée Primo, which can compete with some of the top white wines around the world. How do they age, you might ask? Just take a look at the late release and limited Rarity portfolio (2008 Terlaner and 2009 Terlaner Riserva Nova Domus current vintages). These wines were vinified and refined for one year in large oak before being placed into a steel tank (2,500 liters) and allowed to mature on the lees for ten years or more. In fact, drinking their top wines young is a total disservice to what winemaker Rudi Kofler and his team have created at this bastion of tradition. If there was one stop to make while visiting the region that could give you a real sense of the Alto Adige experience, Terlano is it.”

  • Cantina Terlano Gewurztraminer 2021

    £20.95

    “The 2021 Gewurztraminer is more restrained than expected, wafting up with delicate floral perfumes, hints of green melon and flint. It’s soft-textured and weighty in feel, with citrus-tinged acids adding balance and giving way to ultra-ripe orchard fruits. This tapers off spicy and with a bit of an exotic flair, yet I find myself craving more focus and energy. Drinking window: 2022-2025. 86 points

  • Cantina Terlano Gries Lagrein Riserva 2018

    £27.49

    “This is a classic expression of Lagrein with all the softness and exuberant fruit weight that you should expect of this grape. The Cantina Terlano 2018 Alto Adige Lagrein Riserva Gries exhibits an inky dark appearance with purple and blackish hues. To the finish, this vintage offers dustings of earth and spice; however, the core of the wine is packed tight with fruity richness. Lagrein is normally not a very age-worthy grape, but this bottle will likely sail through to the 10-year mark. Some 45,000 bottles were made. Drink: 2021-2028. 93 points

    This is another set of gorgeous wines from Cantina Terlano. There has been interest from readers in bottle weight, and the top-end wines from this estate continue to be bottled in relatively heavy glass.”

  • Cantina Terlano Kreuth Chardonnay 2020

    £25.99

    “The 2020 Chardonnay Kreuth entices as wet stone and spring flowers give way to musky dried apricot and hints of nectarine. This is elegant yet poised, with silky textures and a pretty inner sweetness setting the stage for its floral-laced orchard fruits contrasted by savory spice. The 2020 finishes long yet nicely refreshing with a subtle hint of saline-crisped green apple. Terlano has really outdone themselves with this delicate yet characterful rendition of Chardonnay Kreuth. Drinking window: 2022-2026. 91 points

  • Cantina Terlano Monticol Pinot Noir Riserva 2019

    £31.95

    “The darkly alluring 2019 Pinot Noir Riserva Monticol opens slowly in the glass, with crushed rocks, flint and dusty dried roses fading to black cherries and clove. This is like pure silk on the palate, yet with a saline core that adds savory depths. A cascade of juicy wild berry fruits flesh out across the palate. The 2019 Monticol tapers off with staining concentration and a coating of sweet tannins, yet it remains remarkably vibrant, lingering with hints of licorice and exotic spice. The Monticol is refined in a combination of large casks (30%) and barriques (70%) for a year prior to bottling. Drinking window: 2023-2029. 92 points

  • Cantina Terlano Nova Domus Terlaner Riserva 2019

    £45.75

    “The 2019 Terlaner Riserva Nova Domus opens slowly in the glass, but is worth the wait, as a delicate mix of pretty spring flowers, wet slate, crushed pear and hints of lime zests waft up from the glass. It’s silky and round in feel. Lifting acidity and minerals energize the expression as savory spices and rich orchard fruits flesh out across the palate. There’s amazing dimension and youthful density here, all in a harmonious state, as the 2019 tapers off lightly structured and with a penetrating citrus intensity that lingers. There’s much more beneath the surface here, which only cellaring with unlock. A stunning Nova Domus. This is a blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon. Drinking window: 2024-2033. 94+ points

  • Cantina Terlano Pinot Bianco 2021

    £18.99

    “The 2021 Pinot Bianco is delicate and understated in the glass, with spring flowers, flint and hints at wet stone forming its bouquet. It flows across the palate with silky textures and medium-bodied weight while delivering a savory mix of orchard fruits and nuances of green citrus. A bitter hint remains as residual acids keep the mouth watering through the saline-tinged finale. Drinking window: 2022-2024. 89 points

  • Cantina Terlano Pinot Grigio 2021

    “The 2021 Pinot Grigio is airy and fresh, with sweet smoke giving way to crushed apple and chamomile. It’s soft, nearly oily in texture, displaying unexpected girth; however, all is balanced by zesty acids and salty mineral tones that settle in toward the close.

  • Cantina Terlano Quarz Sauvignon 2020

    £49.99

    “The word ‘spicy’ doesn’t do the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Quarz justice, as this goes much deeper than that. Exotic curries, ginger, smoke and tomato leaf can all be found; yet beneath it all, there’s a vivid note of honeydew melon. This is silky-smooth and pliant upon entry, yet it slowly saturates the palate in primary concentration, as pepper-tinged nectarine and lemon extracts resonate throughout. There’s so much youthful tension, power and staining depths within, and also a balancing flourish of sweet inner florals that lasts incredibly long. The 2020 Quarz is going to require cellaring to show its best, but it will absolutely be worth waiting for. This is world-class Sauvignon. Drinking window: 2024-2034. 93+ points

  • Cantina Terlano Vorberg Pinot Bianco Riserva 2019

    £33.75

    “The 2019 Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg has an exotic flair, blending rich notes of vanilla custard with white flowers, crushed pears and hints of sweet spice. It’s silky and deeply textural, washing creamy waves of ripe orchard fruits across the palate, while leaving saline-minerals that create a more tactile feel. There are depths yet unseen here, as the 2019 comes across as densely packed and layered, yet with perfect balance and a tart citrus reverberation that adds energy. It finishes long and lightly structured, leaving the palate completely refreshed. This is just a baby today, yet it is full of potential.
