The Chardonnay is the most important white wine variety in the house Salzl. The "New Style" is the middle class in the Seewinkelhof's Chardonnay range, it was fermented in Barriques and therefore has a noticeable aroma of toasty new oak, which is highly remarkable in this (price) range. The fine yeast is stirred up again and again, which gives the wine even more creaminess and fullness.

The 2020 Chardonnay New Style is again very powerful and intense, it has a voluminous body and a lot of charm in the fruit, which is skillfully wrapped around the barrique. The aromas are reminiscent of peach, papaya, mango, coconut and caramel, plus vanilla, a delicate herbal note and of course the animating roasted aromas of the small wooden barrels. The wine is very powerful and always well balanced, leaving a creamy mouthfeel in the long-lasting finish. Here, too, the usual pleasing price level of all Salzl wines can be found. In this class you will hardly find a better barrique Chardonnay, at most a stylistically different.

The Salzl family particularly recommends this wine with crustaceans, white meat, poultry, offal or with Thai cuisine.
