Light golden orange. Fragrance of grapefruit and yellow apple surrounded by lactic notes. Firm, not too dominant tannin structure with a fine, pleasant bitter component. Spicy on the palate. Traminer-typical lychee notes in the finish. Very good length. Designed as a food companion. Goes well with salmon with almond crust, mango salad and wasabi mayonnaise.

100 % Chardonnay from the 2012, 2013 and 2014 vintages, disgorged in October 2020. Bright golden yellow. Very fine, slowly rising pearls. Changes with increasing aeration like a chameleon in front of different colour backgrounds. Initially, there is a clear autolysis touch with aromas of toast and brioche in the foreground, which is only subtly underpinned by yellow fruity accents. Later, it is more of a wood spice that emerges on the nose and, in combination with more pronounced fruit and menthol, is reminiscent of a New World Chardonnay. At first, the palate is more horizontal than vertical, but after about two to three hours, the wine takes on more depth. Overall, with a strong presence on the palate, creaminess and good mousseux. Strawberry in the finish. Very long.
