Von Winning Chardonnay Imperiale 2020
$85.00 inc. GST
93+/100 – Falstaff
“Distinct new oak. But also savoury varietal aromas from anise to strawflower. On the palate, the wine has a lot of volume: an oily base underpins silky phenolics, ripe acidity, and a finish that resumes the spiciness of the aroma and accompanies tactile and mineral sensation.” – Falstaff
Tasting Note: Chardonnay Imperiale grows in the plane of Ruppertsberg and is a selection of the best grapes and ferments in barrels in comparison to “Royale”. The wine is concentrated and firm with noble reduction and finesse à la Mersault, but has the juicy aromas of Californian Chardonnays of cooler vintages.
Region: Pfalz, Germany
