What Karo and Max from Makalié say:
The Chardonnay Zielen, aged for 18 months in old burgundy barrels, comes from a cooler north-east location on the Kaiserstuhl with a higher proportion of clay in the vineyard. There is volcanic weathering rock in the subsoil, which creates a lot of tension in the glass. Slightly smoky on the nose, slightly sinewy in the mouth, surprisingly elegant with intense greenish-yellow fruit and citric elements as well as great minerality. Juicy salted lemons, brioche, apricots, green walnuts, almond blossoms and some pepper. Balanced, fresh and lively with a fine phenolic structure. Needs air and time.
