An elegant and creamy Chardonnay with a delicate ‘vanilla’ nose, well balanced acidity and a long, honeyed and fruity finish, the result of careful fermentation in large aged oak barrels.
Auslese is the German term for ‘late harvest’ and this wine abounds with ripe fruit and yet an amazing acidity that gives it prefect balance.
All the grapes on Weingut Stigler’s Estate are hand-picked, which guarantees the highest level of quality control during the harvest and ensures that only the best grapes are selected for the wine – the antithesis of mass market, ‘pick-it-all’ machine harvesting.
Grown on the loam terraces of the southern slopes of the Kaiserstuhl (The Emperor’s Chair) situated in the Rhine valley between the Vosges mountains and the Black Forest. The climate here is one of the hottest and most stable climates in Germany’s wine regions – more akin to the Mediterranean, but without the sea!
