2018 Chardonnay "Selection", Burgenland, Austria

Nutty, somewhat smoky-woody, delicately herbal-vegetable and hints of floral scent of ripe yellow fruits with a hint of butter and aniseed. Powerful and tart in the mouth, ripe fruit with light wood, smoky hints, salt and anise, some crumbly tannin, lasting and substantial on the palate, lots of power, noticeable but integrated alcohol, some depth, very good, quite firm finish with ripe fruit, wood, salt and alcohol warmth, but at the same time also cooling elements.
