Chardonnay Ried Fuchaberg Reserve 2018

Origin and Terroir

The grapes are from our single vineyard „Fuchaberg“. The gentle hill of the Fuchaberg offers ideal conditions for fruitful and full-bodied wines – barren weathered rocks store the heat in this sun-drenched site and the exposed location allows the wind to dry the vines quickly after a rain shower.

Vinification

The grapes were harvested and gently processed in our cellar. The must was temperature controlled fermented in stainless steel tanks. At the end of the fermentation the wine was racked and was allowed to mature on its fine lees in a big oak barrel.
