Laibach Chardonnay 1999

An extremely elegant and delicate wine with a clear structure and a good length. A very lively acidity adds to the wines freshness. The wine is complemented with lemon, ripe honey-melon and full ripe pear flavours, with a moderate influence of fine oak.

in the cellar : The 1999 Chardonnay was made in a similar style to the 1998. Partly fermented in new French oak and partly fermented in stainless steel. This ensures that the wine and wood is well integrated, and that the wood does not overwhelm any of the fruit. After fermentation the wine was aged in the same barrels for 6 months, during which MLF was completed. The final blend was made just before bottling.
