Jager is a 5th generation estate located in the incredibly picturesque hamlet of Weissenkirsch in the southern Wachau. It is a tiny, five-hectare estate comprised of some of the best vineyard sites in this appellation, including Klaus and Achleiten. The trellised vineyards run steeply along the Wachau, following her contours and turning in the direction in which she runs. The wines are usually fermented in stainless steel, except in the rare vintages where he has enough to fill an old, large oak barrel. Besides the fact that these wines are hallmark examples of the terroir in which they grow, they are less expensive than their more famous neighbors who produce wine in the same vineyards. Our only complaint is that there is not enough wine!

Anne Parent has really become a favorite winemaker with the subtle mix of finesse and power being the calling card, particularly excellent in this fine vin
Razor sharp acidity, seaside salinity, and a minerality that will keep you coming back for another glass. You'll probably want to buy two bottles.
With a splash of oak barrels during fermentation, this Chardonnay as rape, tropical fruit flavors and a perfect velvety texture for good measure.
