Chardonnay Terroir selection 2018

2018, Quality dry white wine
Taste and sensory characteristics

After pouring into the glass, a beautiful golden-yellow colour with an oily consistency predominates. The bouquet at first evokes ripe tropical fruit complemented by the sweet aroma of vanilla. The full, rich taste is joined with a very elegant and lively acid structure. The balanced sip emphasizes the character of the variety, the freshness of quince and citrus, which is well complemented by a delicate sweetness from the burnt-oak barrel. A complex taste, very elegant, and typical of the true volcanic and genuinely elegant Chardonnay Terroir from Chľaba.
