Tasting

Sparkling straw yellow with brilliant reflections, decent viscosity, flowery meadow,  juicy pears, sun-ripened cherry plumb and yellow melon, very attractive, subtle hints of citrus, well balanced residual sweetness supporting the classically outlined impressive fruit range, nice supporting acidity, convincing finish of pears, tropical fruits and hay flowers, pleasant drinking animation.

Pairing

Brie tarte flambée with pomegranate seeds, bread and butter with greengage jam, nicely matches with a classical fruit salade. Would you like to pair it with brioche pastry? „Sweet“ pasta with cream cheese and caramelized slices of Williams pears and white almonds, cucuma buisquit rolls, red smear cheese with pumpkin seed oil injection, quince sorbet with phacelia honey, date-maple sirup cereal bars, gentle tonic in the course of an „anti alcopop therapy“,  this is also „easy-going“ – yet a pure natural product!

Harvested end of September 2018 fully ripe, healthy grapes.

De-stemming, temperature-controlled vinification in stainless steel tanks, preservation of residual sugar by means of cooling and filtration.
