Chardonnay Dessert Beerenauslese
Light straw-gold hue with golden green reflections. A youthful yet complex bouquet, somewhat reserved – like in the budding phase of meadow and elderflower blossoms. Also notes of green apple and lime peel underscored with touches of stone fruit, vanilla and a discreet herbal-spicy touch. On the palate is a light, flavourfully sweet, creamy smoothness thats provides a platform for vibrant, youthful acidity and fine fruitiness (notes of apple, stone fruit, citrus) that carries through to the long, spicy mineral finish.
The grapes come from the Langenloiser Spiegel, whose lime-rich loess soils form this 250 metre-high vineyard site in the south of Langenlois. Its height and exposure – which are optimal for the good aeration here – help to deliver to Burgundian grapes, even at the Prädikat level, a great deal of freshness, structure and density.
- FALSTAFF WEINGUIDE 2015/2016
The grapes were picked in December 2013; half were fermented and matured in steel tanks, the other half in small wooden barrels.
Food pairing recommendation
Fits well to fruity desserts, fresh cheese with fruit, Christmas baked goods, or simply after a meal as a refreshing finale to a successful evening.
