Chardonnay Riserva DOC South Tyrol 2017

Seppelaia

The spearhead of our vineyard. The name is a small provocation: an interplay of the owner‘s name and borrowed from the great names of the Supertuscans. This strictly limited Chardonnay thrives on a terraced slope that slopes south-west. Through the light porphyry-granite soil, small, curly-notched grapes grow here, which thrive in partial shade until they are fully ripe. During the harvest the grapes are again strictly selected.

Vinification

The small grapes are put as a whole into the press and gently pressed for several hours. The fermentation takes place to 100% in wooden barrels with a capacity of 500 and 225l. After fermentation, the young wine undergoes biological acid reduction. After one year of storage in wooden barrels, the barrels are assembled and stored in steel tanks for another 10 months before the wine is bottled. Only after at least two years is the wine put on sale.

Tasting note

The freshness in the wine is a surprising contrast to the fruity-sweet bouquet, a wine with a great variety of flavours. The aroma is reminiscent of gooseberries and intense citrus, complemented by the light scent of freshly mown grass. The taste is dominated by the harmonious minerality paired with a pleasant acidity.

Eichenstein Vineyard

Cellar

The family of Josef Waldner, owner of the winery, have been making wine for 350 years. The origin of winemaking at the Eichenstein has its roots in Marling, where the dedicated wine lover created his first white wine cuvée “Gloria Dei” in 2005. In 2006, he followed on with his “Baccara” Marlot and Cabernet Franc red wine cuvéè, assisted and advised by renowned enologist Hartmann Donà. In 2007 Josef Waldner further realised his vision when he established the Eichenstein vineyard on the Freiberg, from 550-600 m, above Meran. In 2014, the crowning jewel of the vineyard was built: The wine cellar, a vinarium and a guest chalet. And in 2018, the most recent porphyry plot was established at 500 m above sea level.

Josef Waldner

We want our wines to have a stirring soul. That’s why we we strive to create authentic, charismatic wines that live on in your memory. Josef Waldner’s passion for grapes and wine stems from a long family tradition.
