Description

In older wine textbooks, Chardonnay was classified as a variant of Pinot Blanc, namely as “yellow Pinot Blanc”. That was the name used when it was introduced to South Tyrol from France in the second half of the nineteenth century, and for more than a hundred years, it was blended with Pinot Blanc. The first varietal Alto Adige Chardonnay was made in 1982 and was accepted by the international wine market with great enthusiasm.

TASTING NOTES

Kurtatsch Chardonnay has a scent of bananas and gingerbread spices. The characteristic Mediterranean abundance of fruit takes on a smooth acidity structure through selected Chardonnay batches from the high-elevation terraced vineyards of Kurtatsch. The warm influence of the southern winds and the dramatic cooling by night below the limestone cliffs provide the wine with an elegant spice. Straw yellow with greenish undertones, this white wine is fresh, fruity, balanced. We suggest to serve it at a temperature of 10-11 °C.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

The ideal combination for the Chardonnay of Cortaccia winery? Perfect as an aperitif and in combination with light appetizers and cooked fish.

Winery

Cantina Cortaccia

Following a serious crisis in the wine sector, on 1900, May the 13rd, 42 wine makers of Kurtatsch decided to make the first general meeting of the Social winery.
Until that time the grapes were sold wholesale, carrying it with oxcarts to Cornaiano and employing a whole day to convert ten hectoliters of grapes that later, once processed, would reach different markets, including foreign ones.
At that time, there was no retail trade and it was until the end of the First World War to record the sale of the first bottle of wine.
