Da uve Chardonnay
Der Blauwal is our classic method sparkling wine reserve. It comes from a single vineyard, a single vintage and a single grape variety. In its whole production process, time is a precious commodity: it stays at least 84 months on the lees to transfer the complex story of the vintage, the identity of the vineyard and the characteristics of the variety into the wine. It is an extra brut with a dosage of around 3g/l. The roundness of the taste and structure are due to the quality of the grapes that come from old pergolas and the maturity of the fruit.
To prevent this complexity from being diluted, the top-up, which follows the disgorgement, is made with the same starting wine.
