Weingut Von Winning Chardonnay, 2019, Pfalz, Germany
£48.50 (inc VAT)
Lemon skin, flint & elderflower. A touch of Burgundy is here with the usage of barrels.
The grapes are sourced from vineyards in the village of Ruppertsberg on red and yellow sandstone and were spontaneously fermented in Burgundy barrels and bottled without filtration or the use of pumps.
Humble heroes. From their intriguing (and award-winning) Rieslings to their groundbreaking Pinot Noirs, we love every wine and winemaker from this family-run estate. Founded in 1849 by Dr. Deinhard, developed by his son-in-law Leopold von Winning in 1907, the estate was revived in 2007 by Achim Niederberger, together with the Bassermann-Jordan and von Buhl properties. Tragically Herr Niederberger died in 2013, and his wife Jana now steers the ship. No herbicides, no synthetic fertilisers, no copper, no filtering and no fining. Every bottle is a winner.
