Alto Adige Chardonnay DOC
2022 - Altkirch
- Tasting notes
Chardonnay is the classic white Burgundy grape variety and has been producing fine wines in South Tyrol for well over a century. This enormously popular wine is pale yellow with green reflexes in colour, delicate and floral in aromas. The flavour is infused with hints of exotic fruits reminiscent of pineapple, and mango; on the palate it is a concentration of mellowness and vivacity with classic mineral notes and crisp acidity.
Cellaring potential: 2 – 3 years.
- Food Combination
Excellent as an aperitif, it makes a delicious partner for steamed fish, skate in browned butter, baked oysters, light cold and warm starters, seafood salad, vegetable risotto, delicately seasoned dishes based on white meat, as well as for a variety of pasta dishes.
