Chardonnay 2017

2017, Quality dry white wine
Taste and sensory characteristics

Even with the first sip, the fruits, which are in perfect harmony with the mineral and floral tones, the taste of tropical fruit and a pinch of vanilla, are intensively and confidently asserted. The delicately tuned aroma of the wine exhorts us to look for the expected fullness in sips. Every sip of the wine has a full and fresh taste thanks to its balanced acid content. We sense that the grapes were harvested in full maturity and they thus acquired a high aromaticity, which is complemented by the complex process of ripening in large wooden barrels for several months. The creamy-buttery flavour is dominated by lemon peel, apple, ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and summer pear.
