Chardonnay RISERVA "VIGNA CASTEL RINGBERG" DOC Elena Walch
This wine is produced with 100% Chardonnay grapes, cultivated on a hill near Caldaro lake, in Trentino Alto Adige. The vineyard, located in the estate “Vigna Castel Ringberg”, is located 400 meters above the sea level, on soils characterized by clay. The wine making process considers the soft pressing of the grapes, followed by static decanting of the must. Part of it is fermented in steel at a controlled temperature of 18°C and lays on its lees till the spring. The fermentation is managed in barriques made of Allier French oak. At the end of this process, the wine is left on its yeasts (“sur lie”) and submitted to “battonage” for at least 3 months. The aging is developed in barriques for 10 months.

Intense straw yellow colour. Its perfume recalls exotic fruits enriched by hints of vanilla and toasted, due to its passage in wood. The taste is elegant and dry, fresh, rich, balanced, harmonious and persistent.
