Tasting

Glorious golden yellow, rich traces of viscosity on the glass, delicate notes of honey, a fragrance that mirrors the extremely late date of harvesting, most delicate blossom honey, underpinned by slight notes of passion fruit, pineapple and stewed apricots – simply delicious. Noble sweetness combined with racy yet balanced 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 and the local touch of lemon adds to the aroma spectrum, ages perfectly, but not necessarily …

Pairing

Moist cake with Danube walnut brittle, poppy ravioli with stewed quince, 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. To match sophisticated self-talks and complement an unforgettable “Dinner for two”. Ice-cold to tempered Stilton – without cucumber sandwich or to Jersey blue – the Swiss gorgonzola icon.
