2008 Chardonnay »SJ«

Delicate aromas of candied ananas, citrus and butterscotch. A complex palate with a vivid acidity an spicy strength. A very longlasting creamy aftertaste.

The old vines, planted in 1990, are growing in our top vineyard sites Bischoffinger Steinbuck and Enselberg with volcanic soil. Only a strict vineyard management ensures to vinify a wine of extraordinary quality. We strictly reduce the crop to one grape per shoot. Perfect ripe grapes were hand-picked and sorted. A whole cluster pressing gently removed the juice from the skins and seeds, preserving the fresh and vivid fruit flavors. 50% was fermented in stainless steel, 25% in new oak and 25% in used oak.
