Teroldego 2017

Teroldego 2017

Brand Info After starting up Pertaringa in McLaren Vale and K1 in the Adelaide Hills, Geoff established Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy in 2004. Always a passionate and innovative viticulturist, Geoff's Hand Crafted brand offers one of the broadest and most exciting ranges of alternative and emerging varieties in Australia.

Story Until recent times Teroldego was found exclusively in the Trentino region of Italy. It has a long, fascinating and well-documented history. Now that we have managed to pry a few cuttings from the hands of passionate Trentino producers, the 'Lucky Country' seems a likely place for this variety to flourish like the many talented Italian immigrants that have come before it.

Vintage The 2016 vintage was in general very mild with low rainfall. The lack of rain looked like it would result in a quick harvest, but a big downpour in early February made sure the vintage was more evenly spread out. The yields were up on the couple of previous years and the quality is looking great.

Nose The nose offers sweet aromas of cherries and blueberries with notes of purple fruits and rhubarb.

Palate The palate is bright and vibrant with cherries, raspberries and boysenberries, finished off with great acidity.

Food Pairings Try with soft shell blue swimmer crab in a tamarind sauce.
