Paul Achs Chardonnay 2017
Paul Achs returned to the family winery in Gols in 1991 after spending time in California where he learned to produce high-quality red wines and is today one of Austria's best red wine producers. Ninety percent of the production is red wine and all 25 hectares biodynamically farmed. Paul's wines are known for their elegance and finesse.Heideboden is a flat and gravelly area between Gols and the lake and is a source of fresh and easy-drinking red wines. Gravel soils mixed with limestone provide excellent drainage while warm breezes from the Pannonian plain bring the circulation and warmth required to ripen wine grapes consistently.Chardonnay can display great mineral expression when grown on Burgenland diversity of mineral rich soils. Paul Achs produces Chardonnay from 8 hectares of gravel and limestone soils in the Heideboden area. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and is aged large French and Austrian oak casks. The well-drained gravel and limestone soils of Heideboden give Chardonnay a distinctively mineral character coupled with lemon and Mandarin zest with flowers and chalky undertones. Elegantly structured with juicy acidity and silky texture and no noticeable flavor of wood.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
