So I come rolling in and maybe, just maybe, with a tinge of a hangover and who comes rolling in with way too much sunshine up his arse for someone who is moving slowly?? None other than our favorite Italian wine lunatic Todd ‘Pancetta’ Bacon with some new wines including two from a very trendy producer in Alto Adige, Girlan.

If you ever wanted to know what we are talking about when we say, pure, clean and crisp, then this would be a good example. Attractive aromas of pear, peach, and white flowers along with prominent minerally aspects. Clean and elegant in the mouth, this has subtle richness, with virtually crunchy fruit and a pristine, mouthwatering finish. One can have this wine on its own as an aperitif but it really shines with grilled prawns, crab cakes or lightly breaded lingcod.

Drinking Girlan’s Pinot Bianco is like listening to The Who’s ‘Who’s Next’. You know it’s great, probably overplayed yet when you hear it you still marvel at its genius.

The brisk, newly arrived 2020 Pinot Bianco is armed with redolent tones of baked apple, tangerine, lime and pronounced flintiness seemingly go non-stop until the bottle is drained. Filling the mouth with flavor and having plenty of depth, there is ample zesty, crisp acidity that holds it all in balance and extends to the finish that is both stately and sassy. Pair with halibut, smoked salmon and grilled swordfish in a sauce.
