Knewitz Chardonnay Holzfass 2019
Aged in used barriques and from a brilliant vintage this is a stunner!
Cool & focused on the nose with some popcorn reduction, fine herbs, a touch of toasted nuts and faint exotic fruit in the background. Enticing!
But the real magic happens on the palate - precision, depth, an electric tension between the creamy mouthfeel and the juicy, racy, mineral acidity. The limestone minerality bites through. This just begs for another sip!
Notes of sesame, fine herbs, exotic fruit - the wood adding a touch of nutty weight in the backdrop. So finely integrated. And the mineral edge towards the v. long finish
Complex yet not complicated. Elegant. Delicious. — a year ago
