CHARDONNAY

Hofstätter classification

Classic Wines

This pleasantly refreshing and fragrant Chardonnay greets with a pale yellow colour with green highlights. The warm, fruity aroma of Golden Delicious apple distinguishes this wine and highlights its varietal typicity. Crisp acidity, pronounced fruit and a robust structure are the foundation for graceful ageing and this wine will develop its full flavour potential first after 2 years of bottle maturation.

Immediately after the harvest the grapes are subject to a gentle pneumatic pressing in the cellar. The must is clarified by natural sedimentation and fermented using temperature control. A following period of refinement is carried out on fine yeast before the wine is bottled.
