The Fat Lady Sings '21
Rich chardonnay that reminds of a full-bodied and creamy Burgundy-style white with notes of butter, vanilla, and peach, but with German acidity.
This wine was aged for 8 months in new barrels made from three types of oak (the oak is grown in Austria, Germany, and Romania).
Batch of 1.267 bottles
The Fat Lady Sings is unlike most chardonnays - but very like Chateau Amsterdam - as it’s a Burgundy-style chardonnay that was made with grapes from Pfalz in Germany instead of grapes from Burgundy in France. The grapes in Pfalz grow in a cooler climate than in Burgundy, and thereby they have given this wine a higher acidity with a mineral character and citrus flavours.
This wine is our take on a Burgundy style, oak-aged chardonnay, but with grapes from Germany. Thereby, our Fat Lady Sings has the profile of a creamy, white Burgundy, with German acidity. The result is a rich, crispy chardonnay with notes of butter, vanilla, and peach.
De Grote Hamersma graded this wine with a 8.5
