The 2008 Terlaner Rarity is unique in the best possible way, pulling you toward the glass to take in its delicate earth and botanical notes before blossoming further, with lemon oils giving way to fresh pear and hints of incense. Its depth of texture is perfectly matched by the brisk acids within, soothing with opulent waves of ripe orchard fruits and a subtle air of enriching custard and sweet spice. A caking of minerality lingers, balanced by glycerol, baked apple and hints of brown spice, as the 2008 Rarity tapers off with amazing length, yet also focus. A full minute goes by, and its presence still lingers. This is in wonderful form and thrilling to taste. The 2008 Rarity is a blend of 85% Pinot Bianco, 10% Chardonnay and 5% Sauvignon Blanc that spent ten years refining on its lees.
