Winemaker's Notes

Floral, apricot and mineral notes burst from the glass, and the wine is silky and impeccably balanced. Very concentrated, yet lightweight and elegant, with a fresh aftertaste. This wine has a remarkable amount of botrytis/noble rot. Very complex and well-structured wine. Very good interplay between floral flavors, mineral acidity and citrus aromas. Great ageing potential – will be enjoyable for many decades.

Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As apéritif, but also with many kinds of food: Experience not only the matching with seafood and poultry, but also with red meat. Wonderful partner also for rich dishes like foie gras. Can be served as dessert or together with only moderately sweetened desserts like apple or apricot tartes.
