This chardonnay, from the Ihringer Winklerberg site, is marked by an extraordinary minerality that only can occur as a result of the soil of weathered volcanic rock. This gives the wine - in addition to its power - an elegance and finesse. This chardonnay has been fermented in barriques and aged in small French barrels.
Expressive fruit flavours of yellow pear, apricot and mirabelle are refined with a touch of a smoky nuttiness resulting from the gentle barrique ageing. The silky and finely cut body, is marvelously balanced and by no means too heavy. Its yellow fruit aromas continue on the palate and become enriched by a salty minerality in the finish and an excellent acidity structure.
Food recommendation: An ideal wine along to accompany grilled fish, hearty roasts or Mediterranean fare. Equally delicious with a variety of cheeses.
