"This shows density and depth with layers of ripe apple, almond, cedar and cooked pear character. Full body, phenolic and powerful at the end. A very serious white. A blend of grapes such as chardonnay and pinot bianco. Drink or hold."

"Elena Walch's 2015 Alto Adige Beyond The Clouds is a wine of density and richness, yet it also manages to feel feather light on the palate. That special quality of showing concentration without feeling heavy has also defined past editions of this Chardonnay-based blend from the far north of Italy. The other grapes used are aromatic, and you do get notes of honey, exotic fruit and night-blooming jasmine. Some 14,000 bottles were produced."

"Light accents of oak spice and toast enrich the poached pear, spring blossom and lemon meringue flavors in this medium-bodied, harmonious white. Fresh and focused, with spice and graphite notes on the creamy finish. Predominantly Chardonnay. Drink now through 2025. 1,200 cases made."
