Maturation: steel tanks
Chardonnay is the most widespread variety on the globe. It originates from France and was introduced to our regions in the 19th century. Here it was known as Burgunder or Morillon. As the growing conditions are similar to those in its homeland, it also became well-established here.
The wine is characterized by an alluring fruity bouquet that has hints of apple, pear, melon, pineapple, banana or citrus fruits; overripe fruit may develop notes of dried fruit and honey. A full-bodied and elegant flavour with finer natural balancing acidity than many new world versions thanks to our cooler climate and longer growing season.
Gentle lemon yellow with lemon hues. The bouquet is medium accentuated. Fine, focused and beautifully composed. It would be difficult to highlight one note, but it is a combination of ripe yellow fruits, especially pears, melons. Juicy and lively at the same time. Dry in the mouth, lively acids, medium body, with a nice fruit charge, which is even more eloquent in the mouth than in the bouquet. With a longer decline. A beautiful, young lively chardonnay that clearly expresses its cold origins.
