Chardonnay SP* trocken

The vineyard:

A special vine selection from particularly good Chardonnay vineyards in France and Italy formed the basis for this extraordinary vineyard. In the meantime, the vines are over 30 years old and yields are low enough to produce the desired high qualities.

 

The floor:

In contrast to the red sandstone that is predominant in the Palatinate, the soil of this vineyard consists of loess loam with a high limestone content. This makes the wines unmistakable: minerality, charming fruity play and a strong body ensure the wines have a particularly long life. All in all, an ideal soil for great Burgundy wines.

 

The wine:

Only selected, highly aromatic grapes are used for this Chardonnay. The grapes are carefully picked by hand, gently pressed and fermented in a large wooden barrel (1,200 liters, so-called piece barrel) made of Palatinate oak. Following the alcoholic fermentation, the wine goes through a so-called malolactic fermentation. This and several months of storage on the yeast ("sur lie") give the Chardonnay SP its particularly elegant, harmonious character.
The scent is dominated by fruity aromas such as passion fruit and pear, accompanied by fine roasted aromas. A harmonious, dense wine with a nice creaminess and balance. A great meal companion!
