Manhart 2020, Chardonnay ∙ Pinot Gris ∙ Pinot Blanc – 0,75l

16,00

Golden yellow hue and green reflections. Distinct legs. Discreet fragrance – though still slightly closed because of its youth – with notes of apple pie, dried herbs, flint and candle wax. A very present,  multi-layered palate delivering an array of flavours including orange, lemon, yellow apple and pretzel sticks. Fine extract sweetness with a piquant acidity. Mouthfilling; a smooth, creamy texture. The vital tension is uplifting and refreshing.  A salty, minerally finish underscored with a green tea -with-lemon tone. (tasted by wine academic Johannes Fiala)
