Brilliant golden yellow, rich traces of viscosity on the glass, delicate notes of honey, the fragrance as if Welschriesling would directly descent from yellow peaches, underpinned by slight notes of passion fruit, pineapple and stewed apricots – simply delicious. Noble sweetness combined with racy acidity, soft peach skin, fragrant yellow fruit flesh, notes of various stone fruits, juicy all through. Like a noble piece of jewellery, totally on the precise and reductive side, vivacious and backed by most delicate hints of blossom honey; Rust minerality adds to the aroma spectrum, ages perfectly, but not necessarily…
Poppy ravioli with stewed peaches, pralines of goose-liver, Dolcelatte with bread from dried pears, pear tart, honey sorbet with sugar melon flambé, sweet pasta with stewed strawberries & caramel-almonds, delicious fruit pralines.
