"From gypsum marly Kemper soils and vinified in 300-liter barrels for a year and for another seven months sur lie in stainless steel, the 2020 Chardonnay Bönnigheim Sonnenberg opens with a ripe and pretty complex, reductive styled and slightly iodine-scented nose with ripe fruit aromas intertwined with flinty notes of crushed stones and fresh brioche. Lush and elegant on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, persistent, structured and finely phenolic Chardonnay with a complex character and a quite long, intense, tense and iodine-laced finish. This is a lot of wine from vines planted in the 1980s. Tasted in April 2022 as a tank sample ready to be bottled."
