Chardonnay "Cardellino" Alto Adige DOC 2021 - Elena Walch

There is always a curious reason for the names Elena Walch gives her wines. In this case, too, the name Goldfinch, which by the way was the first wine from the Walch house and is still one of the best-loved, was not given by chance. It is said, in fact, that these little birds love to build their nests on the very Chardonnay vines that give life to this interesting mountain white. An important wine with character, this Chardonnay is the result of careful processing in the cellar. Part of the must is fermented and matured in French oak barriques for 5 months. And after racking at the end of fermentation, the wine remains on the lees for a long time. At least until the following spring, when it is finally assembled. Cardellino has a beautiful, intense straw yellow colour. The nose reveals a complex bouquet of fruity aromas, orange and lemon peel, notes of lime blossom, a mineral sensation and a spicy hint of tobacco. In the mouth, however, it surprises with its freshness and lively minerality. The finish is long, intense and soft. Excellent as an aperitif, it goes well with smoked salmon and savoury pasta dishes.

Elena Walch is a name that needs no introduction among Italian wine lovers (and probably most of the world). Elena Walch is simply synonymous with quality wine from South Tyrol. A family-run business, Elena Walch has always been a promoter of quality and innovation. An architect by profession, Elena married the heir to one of the oldest wine families in the region and was able to introduce important modernisation concepts into the family business, which is now run by her daughters Julia and Karoline. The principle is that the wines should be a unique expression of their soil, climate and work in the vineyard. And that the vineyard should be worked according to the principles of sustainability in order to be left as a legacy for future generations. With around 60 hectares in production, including the two vineyards VIGNA Castel Ringberg in Kaltern and VIGNA Kastelaz in Tramin, Elena Walch's estate is certainly one of the most interesting wineries in South Tyrol.
