For a long time, no distinction was made between the grape varieties Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay, as the differences are difficult for the eye to detect. Chardonnay has been cultivated in Alto Adige for about 150 years and is now one of the leading white wine varieties.

The weather conditions made 2019 a challenging year for our winegrowers. A relatively mild winter and early spring were followed by a wet and cool April and May. After the flowering of the vines, which was not until June, the weather changed and it became hot and dry. In late summer, some rain and below-average temperatures delayed the ripening of the grapes. Harvesting the healthy grapes began in early September and continued until the end of October.

– brilliant straw-yellow
– full of tropical fruit aromas, especially pineapple and banana, just a hint of oak, with vanilla and butter rounding off this expressive nose
– full-bodied and balanced on the palate, long lingering finish with echoes of ripe fruit

This wine is perfect as an aperitif, or enjoyed with appetizers and fish.

Whole-cluster pressing of ripe, healthy grapes, followed by a 10 to 18-hour cold maceration and natural clarification, slow fermentation at a controlled temperature of 18 °C, 5-month ageing on the fine lees (50% in the large casks and big wooden barrels), filtering and bottling in March.

South- and east-sloping vineyard between 350 and 450 meters above sea level. Very windy site, well-ventilated and therefore predestined for a later harvest; loamy, sandy, chalky gravel.
