Vinification of the Johann Topf Chardonnay Hasel
The basis for the balanced Chardonnay Hasel from Lower Austria are grapes from the Chardonnay grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Lower Austria. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of loess soil. Chardonnay Hasel is an Old World wine through and through, as this Austrian breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the harvest, the grapes arrive swiftly at the winery. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by aging for several months in oak barriques.
