Pfitscher - Arvum Chardonnay 2017
Pfitscher - Arvum Chardonnay 2017 (87 TSW)
Today Chardonnay from Alto Adige! Not a heavy one but with nice freshness.
Fermentation from Arvum Chardonnay takes place in steel barrels and barriques at a controlled temperature of 18°C. Maturation in the steel barrel on the fine lees produces a refined taste and aroma.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a bright golden yellow color.
On the medium nose aromas of yellow apple, white peach and pearr with hints of tropical fruits, melon and light barrique.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with nice acidity and light waxy mouthfeel and nice freshness. Recall of the nose with light nutty and almond medium aftertaste.
Ideal with light starters, white meats, fish and seafood. Also makes an ideal aperitif.
