Chardonnay Alto Adige Doc 2019 – Rottensteiner
Pairing: Fish-based appetizers, Fish-based main dishes, Second dishes featuring white meats
|Wine type||White Wine|
|Vineyards||It is grown at a mid-range altitude, about 450 and 600 m around Bolzano. It is a typical South Tyrolean Chardonnay.|
|Soil||Sandy- argillaceous porphyry.|
|Vinification||An attentive temperature control during the fermentation gives us a wine rich in grape aromas with a good balance between body and harmony.|
|Residual Sugar||2,5 g/l.|
A notable body meets a stimulating elegance, fine fruity notes (peach) and an exciting freshness. It is an excellent accompaniment to fish, not too light starters and white meat. It is best during the first two years after vintage and served at a temperature of 12-14 °C.
The Chardonnay was known for a long time as a “yellow“ Pinot Blanc and was usually mixed with the normal Pinot Blanc. In the meantime the variety showed that it is able to stand alone as an excellent wine in our region.
