Die Kellerei Terlan hat von jeher einen hervorragenden Ruf für ihre langlebigen Weißweine.

Die Gewächse aus Terlan starten langsam, brauchen etwas länger Zeit sich zu entwickeln, sind dann aber komplex und eigenständig. In der Schatzkammer ...

2014 - Antonio Galloni presents Vinous

Alto Adige’s steep hillside vineyards are breathtaking. The wines are every bit as compelling. One of the distinguishing characteristics here is that the average vineyard holding per family is the smallest in Italy. This phenomenon has given rise to numerous cooperatives, the best of which offer superb quality and value. Perhaps the most famous is Terlano.

  • Kreuth '12

    94 points
    The 2012 Chardonnay Kreuth is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Apricot, peach, wild flowers, smoke, butter and crushed rocks all grace the palate in an utterly exquisite, layered Chardonnay endowed with stunning class and elegance. Layers of flavor built to a textured, stunning finish that is all about density and power. This is a great example of Alto Adige Chardonnay.
  • Vorberg '11

    92+ points
    Terlano's 2011 Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg is bright, focused and incredibly young. Ripe pear, spice and sweet floral notes emerge over time, but the 2011 is just showing the barest hint of its true potential. The focused, tense finish suggests a very bright future lies ahead. It would be great if readers could cellar this wine for a few years, as it will only blossom with more time in bottle.
  • Kreuth '11

    92 points
    A richer and more honeyed wine than the 2012, the 2011 Chardonnay Kreuth is graced with expressive scents of orange peel, almond and apricot jam. The wine's radiance and pure voluptuousness make it accessible today, but I have to admit, I am very intrigued to see how this vintage will age. The resonant, highly expressive finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste.
  • Nova Domus '99

    93+ points
    Terlano's 1999 Nova Domus Terlaner Riserva, tasted from magnum, impresses for its freshness and nuance. Crisp green pears, jasmine, crushed rocks and vibrant saline notes grace the palate as this exquisite wine opens up in the glass. The personality of the cool vintage comes through in spades, while aging in tonneau has helped maintain a gorgeous sense of energy. How long will the 1999 drink well? Probably longer than I think.
  • Pinot Bianco 2002 '96

    92 points
    The 1996 Pinot Bianco Rarità is totally wild and unrestrained. Petrol, game, smoke, mint and pear notes emerge, but the 1996 is a bit unruly and never seems to fully come together in the glass. Today, the 1996 stands out for its enveloping, textured finish. Though not exactly a model of finesse, there is little question the 1996 has aged well.
  • Pinot Bianco 2002 '92

    94 points
    The 1992 Sauvignon gives more emphasis to pure texture than to varietal notes. Still, it is drop-dead gorgeous from the very first taste. White and yellow orchard fruit and a host of expressive floral notes form a tapestry of exquisite beauty. Soft, supple and inviting, the 1992 is simply stunning. It should drink well for another decade or more. What a gorgeous wine this is.
  • Pinot Bianco 2002 '90

    95 points
    The 1990 Chardonnay is a rare wine at Terlano in that it is pretty much mature. It only took 24 years. Almond, hazelnut, apricot and smoke overtones give the 1990 an attractive burnished quality to match its rich, layered personality. Although I don't see the 1990 materially improving, it also shows no signs of fading whatsoever.
  • Chardonnay '84

    94 points
    Terlano's 1984 Chardonnay is beautifully rich and resonant in the glass. Hazelnut, smoke and apricot overtones grace the palate in a generous and surprisingly full-bodied 30 year-old Chardonnay endowed with remarkable balance. This is yet another ageless beauty from the cellars of Terlano.
  • Pinot Bianco 2002 '79

    95 points
    How can a 35 year old wine be this fresh? I have no idea, but the simple fact is that Terlano's 1979 Pinot Bianco is superb. White floral notes meld into green pears. Lime, citrus and mineral overtones appear later. An utterly unforgettable wine, the 1979 Pinot Bianco simply dazzles. It also shows no signs of tiring. If anything, it may need to be opened at least a few hours in advance.
  • Terlaner Cuvée '56

    94 points
    The 1956 Terlaner is layered, silky and beautifully resonant on the palate. At nearly 60 years of age, the 1956 has aged with impeccable grace. Smoke, almond, hazelnut and truffle notes hover above the captivating finish. Terlano's great wines from the 1950s remain early testaments to the greatness of Alto Adige's best vineyard sites.
