Vintage:
Chardonnay Toasted & Unfiltered 2017
One of our cult-wines. Some great wines are sourced from the chalky loess soils of the Kamptal. The basin-shaped topographic depression in 'Kittmannsberg', as well as the terraces in the 'Thal', are the crus for our Chardonnay grapes that allow long maturation and full flavour concentration. The wine ages for two years in small, toasted oak barrels, before it is bottled unfiltered to develop its optimum quality.
[This wine was bottled without filtration and can therefore form sediments while aging.]

Wine description
Out of the glass flows the scent of a ripe mango, bright fruit dominates, carried by a gentle toasting, ripe and clear. On the palate the wines shows a lot of pressure, yellow fruit, some red berries, yellow and red vineyard peach, fruit and delicate smoky wood aroma in a harmonious symbiosis, also some roasted almonds and mocha beans, creamy, enormously multi-layered and fine with a chalky-salty finish.
