Chardonnay Ried Sausaler Schlössl 2016
Complex, elegant structure, rich in extracts—Chardonnay with strong terroir-expression
Sausaler Schlössl: Very steep and highly located single vineyard with very meagre slate soil. On this historical single vineyard we are able to pick grapes very late at perfect physical ripeness. The slate soil brings a lot of finess and the aging potential is very high.
Red and blue-black slate (paleozoic slate)
