Chardonnay Spätlese Trocken Annaberg
The 120-year-old Annaberg vineyard is known to hardcore German wine fans as the birthplace of Scheurebe, but its south-facing slope of rich, dark soils inflected with sand and chalk also turns out to be prime ground for Chardonnay. Dominik farms this organically and matures the wine without bâtonnage in old oak barrels, rendering a vivid, finely etched style that speaks in its own salty, citrusy, savory idiom. 5.5g RS and 7.5g acid. A Chard unlike any other in the world.
