Gräfin De La Tour

denomination

DOC Collio

grape variety

100% Chardonnay

winemaking

The grapes are hand harvested during the chilly early hours of the day and are gently pressed. The first must is pumped into 225 and 500 lt small oak casks for 12 months. It is then blended in stainless steel vat for an year and finally matures for 12 months in the bottles.

tasting notes

Golden yellow with slight yellow tints at the edges and ripe apple, vanilla and citrus aromas very well integrated on the nose. Balanced, complex and powerful on the palate.

food and wine pairings

Excellent as an aperitif with quality medium-aged cheeses and fragrant cured meats, perfect to accompany structured first courses, hearty soups such as seafood chowder, refined cuts of white meat, possibly grilled, and fish.
