Soft and fond of chalk like the roman snail.
We call it the vineyard snail and this is exactly where it can be found. In past times they would just have been served as delicacy but now we are a bit friendlier. The Helix pomatia as it is called correctly is strictly protected nowadays and as an organic farm we are of course eagerly supporting that cause. In our vineyards the snail finds lots of food and cover while everyone can easily discover and watch them there. It’s not like its going to run away, is it?
The Chardonnay grape has always been esteemed as being able to yield excellent white wines. The grape is common in Austria since many decades at least but often referred to by one of its many synonyms like Morillon or Feinburgunder. But that did of course never prevent it from showing its quality which made Chardonnay wines famous and highly-valued all over the world. Our classic-style Chardonnays are exclusively dry and generally show an excitingly fruity and ripe character.
Exotic flower-like flavour in concert with intensely aromatic tones. Fruity on the palate and balanced with an elegant, full body.
This is a wine for plain enjoyment. It goes best with white meat, sauces and seafood but it’s also a good companion for light vegetable food like asparagus.
Drink ideally within 3-4 four years after the harvest.
