Weingut Henson Weissburgunder Chardonnay 2014

wbchaard

Region: Bad Durkheim, Pfalz

Tasting notes: A lot of acidity, I think I’d prefer it a little more balanced but the wine definitely reflects the strengths of both the varietals. Good structure and very aromatic. Citrus and slate on the palate with tropical fruits on the nose. I feel like this would be excellent in hot weather, our bottle didn’t last the night but the high acid makes me think this could last a few days and still keep it’s bright, cheery kick. It is 13% alcohol which I think is high but I find a lot of the wines I drink out of this region are similarly strong.

Eaten with: Pork chops and apples, roasted carrots.
