This Chardonnay is characterized by stylish opulence with lots of exotic fruit and delicate, choice roast aromas. The complex bouquet is reminiscent of ripe citrus fruits, coconut with a hint of vanilla. Extract and acidity form an appealing balance. Round on the palate, with velvety fruit and pleasantly integrated tannins. A multifaceted, elegant Chardonnay with great ageing potential.
Chardonnay FREIENFELD: the charming one.
