2017 Bernhard Huber Chardonnay Alte Reben

Tasting note

2017 Bernhard Huber Chardonnay Alte Reben

Straw yellow colour, medium viscosity with colourless streaks in the glass. Already on the nose a broad-shouldered wine with strong notes of ripe lemons, peach, unmistakable wood influence, buttery, but also with a minerality of wet stones. The wood comes across as somewhat toasted, reminiscent of roasted nuts. There was certainly new wood involved. In the mouth, the Chardonnay also presents itself as voluminous and reductive. The lemon comes through even more clearly due to the crisp acidity. A punchy wine with a long, slightly salty finish. How old the vines are, I do not know. But I would guess that the age of Chardonnay vines in Baden could be between 20 and 40 years. A great German Chardonnay with a distinctive style.

Drink through 2027.
