An intensive white wine - not just in colour, but in fragrance and taste. The secret of this white wine lies in the special features of the area in which it is cultivated: Lahn in Appiano. These vineyards only produce a small yield, yet what they produce is typified by sustained character and quality. Its delicious and strong aromas, reminiscent of elderberry and honey, leave behind an abundance of lingering sensations on the palate. This wine, served straight the cellar, makes a huge impression even when served young: a long maturing process in the bottle, however, enhances its density and its complexity.

A pleasant, full-bodied white wine with a rare elegance. Light green reflections sparkle through its golden colour. Its bouquet is characterised by fruity aromas, especially those of fresh green apples, such as those which ripen beside the vineyards of Merol. A fine balance between acidity and smoothness bestows a special structure on this Chardonnay. A fruity, lively, inviting wine which, when served chilled, goes well with many appetisers, with fish and white meat, or which may be enjoyed simply as an outstanding aperitif.
