Lake Garda white wine - Garda DOC Chardonnay Selezione Colombara

This lake Garda white wine is obtained from our best grapes of Chardonnay. 12 months ageing in barriques mellows the flavours and causes the bouquet to evolve from a perfume reminiscent of exotic fruits to that of vanilla and honey.

Technical Sheet

Grapes: Chardonnay 100%.
Alcohol content: 14%vol.
Vineyard: on clay-rich soil, producing almost 80q/ha. The vines are trained with the spurred cordon.
Harvest: we manually select the best bunches and transport them in little crates.
Vinification: After a brief crio-maceration and a soft pressing of the whole grapes, the must is placed in a stainless steel tank, where it fermentates completely at 17°C.
Ageing: in french oak barriques for 12 months, where it makes the malo-lactic fermentation.
Colour: beautiful and deep yellow with golden highlights.
Aroma: rich and intense, remembering of exotic fruits with little hints of sweet spices.
Flavour: harmonious and elegant. Good freshness paired with a great body and a good persistence.
Pairing: ideal with seafish dishes (fantastic with salmon), white or even spicy meat and mature cheese. With smoked or fat seasoned raw ham, it is a must-try.
Best served at: 10-12°C.
