Vinification of the Chardonnay from Kloster Eberbach
The elegant Chardonnay from Germany is a single-varietal wine, made from the Chardonnay grape variety. At the time of optimal ripeness, the grapes for the Chardonnay are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective machines. After the harvest, the grapes are taken to the press house in the fastest possible way. Here they are sorted and carefully ground. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Chardonnay is allowed to further harmonize on the fine lees for several months.
