Markus Altenburger - Chardonnay Vom Kalk 2021
Markus Altenburger readily admits that in his Austrian vineyards he prefers to do as little as possible: he lets his wines do all the work. The roots of the vines, for example, have to dig deeper and deeper into the barren flanks of the Leithaberg in search of food. Even during ripening and fermentation, Markus leaves all the work to the grapes. The result is therefore honest: natural wines that translate the terroir and the cool climate aspect through and through.
This Chardonnay is very frish and mineral, without acidity becoming too high. A intriguing smokiness gives the wine a beautiful complexity. Minimal sulfur.
