User Reviews for Terlano Chardonnay Kreuth

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine: "The color is a brilliant attractive straw yellow. The aroma is built of exotic fruit components such as maracuja, star fruit and citrus, with the overall impression in the nose rounded off by spicy minerally notes of flint. This Chardonnay is harmonious on the palate, where the soft and creamy elements combine with a hint of fruit to create a pleasing whole with a counterpoint of minerality and a salty finish." - Winery Vinification: "Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in big oak barrels (30 hl); malolactic fermentation and aging on the lees in traditional wooden barrels for 8 months." - Winery Vintage notes: "The climatic conditions we experienced in 2011 presented us with considerable challenges. That is because especially in the case of wines produced in years characterized by extreme weather conditions, the points in time of harvesting is of utmost importance and must be decided on by each vineyard individually. After an extraordinarily warm and dry April and a summery May, there followed a June with average temperatures and considerable percipitation. The very mild spring resulted in sprouting about a week earlier than usual. "As a consequence of the ideal autumn weather, too, this vintage can be regarded as 'good' to 'very good'," according to enologist Rudi Kofler." - Winery
