Matthias Warnung has been farming his father's vineyard since 2010. All the grapes are hand-harvested, the wine ferments spontaneously and little to no SO2 added.
This is not your big oaky, Chardonnay. Even though it does spend time in barrel, the neutral barrel he uses offers a soft richness, but balances out with a fresh, textured finish.
Age of Vines: 20 years old
Soil: Mixture of loess and gravel
Vinification Method: Grapes are hand harvested and pressed as whole bunches to 8 year old 400 liter barrels for fermentation. The wine spends 2 years in barrel for elevage and is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with a small amount of sulfur added.
