Terlan Chardonnay is a brilliant light straw yellow color. The aroma of this Chardonnay releases exotic fruity impressions with nuances of banana, quince, passion fruit, mango and sugar melon plus a hint of lemon balm. A touch of pear gives the Chardonnay a mouthfeel that is very soft and harmonious combined with sweetish exotic fruit components. Its slightly mineral note makes this wine smooth and adds an intriguing contrast.
The Cantina Terlano 2019 Alto Adige Chardonnay Tradition is a lean-bodied expression with just enough texture and creaminess to accompany shellfish dishes or white meat. The wine pours from the bottle with lightness and luminosity, imparting aromas of melon, peach, white almond and a touch of dry Mediterranean herb. These elements come together with seamless transitions and pretty energy. This is a widely available value wine, with 60,000 bottles made, that really hits the spot, especially on a warm and sunny afternoon.

Aromas of flint, dried apples and some cooked pears follow through to a medium body with cooked-apple and pear flavors. It’s fruity and delicious on the finish.
