Wijndomein Pietershof

Chardonnay 2019


Funky Citrus & Stone

This funky citrus- and limestone-inflected Chardonnay comes from a Belgian terroir with remnants of an ancient ocean bed. In other words, these tastes go back to the age of dinosaurs; just check out the gnarly 70-million-year-old squid on the label. Welcome to Jurassic Wine.

Founded in 2000 by cello-playing Dutchman Piet Akkermans and succeeded by Albert Meijer, Wijndomein Pietershof produces fresh, mineral-driven wines that are truly made in the vineyard. Learn more
