Alto Adige Chardonnay DOC 2023

About this wine

The name "Caliz" comes from the Latin words Calix (calyx) and Calx (chalk). Chardonnay Caliz grows solely on light gravel soils with large shares of dolomite limestone.

Its delicate bouquet is reminiscent of ripe pineapple, baby bananas and lime zest. This characteristic Mediterranean fruitiness is complemented by tight acidity structure from selected lots of Chardonnay from higher-lying vineyards. Through longer ageing on the fine lees, the wine gains complexity and consistency. The large day/night temperature swings lend the wine additional spiciness, Caliz's finish is long and salty.
