Site, Vineyard and Soil
Weingarten Satzäcker and Kräutergarten, gravelly alluvial soils with high limestone content.
Pale greenish gold. Subtle aromas of greengage plums, lemon, grapefruit and a bit of sweet balm. Has a lightly smoky note in the finish. On the palate, there is a crisp and refreshing acidity, coupled with the returning aromas of citrus, grapefruit, nuts and white pepper. Very lovely and persistent on the palate, quite mineralic with a well structured medium-length finish. Much more a homage to Chablis than to any other region in the world of wines. Intentionally so.
The classic entry in the Chardonnay category. It goes very well with vegetable dishes and fish. An inspired accompaniment to a composition from Walter's in Augsburg: terrine of red beets, arctic char and horseradish cream served with pickled pumpkin.
