Chardonnay Toasted & Unfiltered 2020
Chardonnay thrives on the lime-rich soils of the Kamptal. The old vines grow on the terraces of our Kittmannsberg and Thal vineyard. Here the small grapes can slowly ripen to reach their full aromatic potential. After fermentation in large and small barrels, the wine matures for two years in small, lightly toasted oak barrels. It is later bottled without filtration in order to develop its optimum quality. The result is a dense and fine-grained Chardonnay with the unmistakable Hiedler signature.

The grapes were selectively harvested by hand in mid-October and slightly crushed. After some hours of maceration they were gently pressed off with low pressure. Fermented in big and small oak barrels, followed by two years of maturation in small, lightly toasted oak barrels on the lees (new & used). Bottled unfiltered at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in August 2022.
Wine description
The scent of ripe mango hits the nose, bright fruit dominates, carried by a gentle toasting, nuanced and clear; on the palate the wine shows tension and densitiy, juicy acidity, yellow fruit, red berries, vineyard peach, also some roasted almonds and mocha beans, creamy, enormously multi-layered and fine with a chalky-saline finish.
