Soft pressing, static clarification, followed by temperature controlled fermentation (20°C), after which the wine is kept on its fine lees for several months. A part of the wine (15%) is fermented in French oak barriques, where it matures on its lees for another five months. Final blending occurs in spring and the wine is subsequently bottle-aged before release.
The Chardonnay “Cardellino” shows a straw-yellow color, with a complex play of fruity aromas, citrus and orange peel, some lime blossom, a mineral fullness and a spicy touch of tobacco. On the palate, this classic by Elena Walch surprises with exciting freshness and racy minerality, with elegance and juicy length. Inviting, refreshing and drinkable.
