Bercher 2015 Chardonnay SE Dry

Bercher 2015 Chardonnay SE Dry

Regular price £26.60

100% barrel fermented and aged, under 15% new oak. It comes from two vineyards: one has volcanic soils from which they used to make a rather big New World-style wine, the other is a much higher vineyard from which they used to make a lighter more acidic wine. The weingut decided to blend the vineyards for more balance. Smells like zesty lemon cheesecake. Soft tropical papaya and melon flavours with a fine seam of acidity and some herbs lurking underneath. Elegant and smooth.
