Seckinger R Chardonnay Pur, 2021, 750ml
This Chardonnay come from a blending of sandstone and marl soils the famous Reiterpfad Grand Cru vineyard (VDP.GROSSES GEWÄCHS), and the two Premier Cru vineyards (VDP.ERSTE LAGE) of Linsenbusch and Nußbein. Vinification: These are not wines for those that enjoy the so-called ‘traditional’ style, often with at least some residual sugar and a more fruit-forward style. Wines are vinified bone dry. What’s more, the moniker of ‘natural winemaker’ or ‘avant-guard winemaker’ irritates Jonas. He’s proud of them working biodynamically, but he’s not dogmatic about issues such as sulphur, and prefers to talk about his craft as cellar master.
