A truly wonderful Chardonnay! Aromatic, spicy yet round, medium body with a charming velvety finish. The Chardonnay comes from the Oberbergener Bassgeige vineyard (from the Kaiserstuhl region), which is well known far beyond Baden . The name was derived from the characteristic shape of the vineyards surrounding the village. The terroir consists mainly of loess on top of volcanic rock and thus contributes to the distinctive character of the wines that come from it. Here, the famous Franz Keller winery carefully surrounds the cooler vineyards at higher elevations, producing elegant wines with a delicate aroma. The modest use of oak also emphasizes the characteristics of the variety even better.

This Chardonnay is light yellow to yellowish in color with aromas of ripe fruit (including yellow apple) and nuts, butter and spiciness of wood on the nose. Round and soft in the mouth with a high concentration. The wine has a long finish with excellent minerality. Combines very well with roasted fish and seafood, shellfish, dishes with creamy butter sauces and with Asian cuisine.

Franz Keller – Schwarzer Adler is a gastronomic concept in Baden and actually also in the rest of Germany. The company consists of a wine estate, wine import, wine trade, hotel and no fewer than 3 restaurants. The company is run by Fritz Keller and his son Friedrich is mainly involved in winemaking. The name Franz Keller stands for dry, refreshing, fruity but also complex and mineral-driven powerful wines. The wines are always of excellent, impeccable quality and are highly appreciated in Germany and far beyond. The winery believes it is very important that the terroir, origin and character of the wine are reflected in the taste. The approach to winemaking is inspired by the wines and "savoir-vivre" of their French neighbors. The goal of this winery from the very beginning has been to make wines that are the perfect complement to good food.
