The Westhofen Chardonnay from Dreissigacker comes into the glass with a wonderful golden yellow colour and reveals a sensationally fresh and fruity bouquet to the nose. Yellow stone fruits such as mirabelles and apricots, ripe pears and exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple determine the first nose. Elegant herbal notes of rosemary and some cinnamon and orange peel complement the bouquet. The scent profile of the Westhofen Chardonnays from Dreissigacker is rounded off by elegantly nutty and slightly buttery notes as well as a touch of brioche.On
the palate, the Dreissigacker Westhofener Chardonnay provides a clear, finely juicy prelude. Tight, powerful, quite compact and complex body, this Chardonnay glides over the tongue. The palate is filled with a precise, firm structure with melting and an almost exotic taste of candied stone fruit and honey melon with a tasty minerality, again herbs and delicate vanilla notes. Persistent and intense as well as profound and again delicately melting, the Dreissigacker Westhofener Chardonnay flows into an incredibly long finish, which reveals a wonderful play of acidity, freshness and creamy fullness.
