I find this wine to be Trocken. Trocken means the wine is dry. To make a wine dry they usally ferment the grapes until there is not sugar left. So no matter how ripe and sweet the grapes are the wine ends of being dry. I found a hint of green apple in the taste and a strong mineral taste. This wine smells minerals and a light apple smell. I feel that the mineral taste and the wine being to dry isn't something I like. I paired this wine with tequila shrimp and citrus. I feel that any seafood that doesn't have a sweet taste to the palette would be good with this wine. The dryness of this wine would not complement any sweet foods. If you like a dry wine I think you would like this wine.
