The Collective Review

The 2022 San Marzano Edda Lei Salento IGP Bianco has landed and is looking as fantastic as before. From the Puglian foothills, this unique Chardonnay blend (with a few friends in the form of Moscatello & Fiano) is fast becoming one of the great import staples here at TWC. For 5 years in a row, it's notched up the highest honour Italian Wine critic Luca Maroni can bestow upon it: the title of Italian White Wine of the Year and a perfect score (in his books) of 99 points (100 is not achievable or attainable).

This Chardonnay blend wouldn’t look out of place if it came from the old Roxburgh Vineyard in the Hunter, or something more akin to the latter-day Scarborough White label Chardonnays.

Tasting Notes

A distinctive blend of Chardonnay, Minutolo, Moscatello Selvatico and other varieties, delivering aromas of sun-ripened peach and mellow floral aromatics, which are interwoven with delicate hints of vanilla. Fresh and beautifully balanced, the rounded palate is elegantly styled and has a touch of minerality on the finish.

Winemakers Note

Edda (‘she’ in Salento dialect) is the feminine and sensual soul of San Marzano. It is a complex white wine, full of Mediterranean notes. Noticeable acidity intertwined with an enveloping and elegant warmth, savoury and mineral notes on the palate. The Chardonnay grapes give the wine finesse and longevity, together with different varieties indigenous to Puglia, that year after year compete to complement the blend.
