Straw-yellow and brilliant, white elderflower, definitely mineral, red and yellow bell pepper, grapefruit; an animating tropical orchard. Dry with delicate fruit acidity and a remarkable creamy texture and density. Gooseberry, maracuja, red currant and pomelo. That smells like an early summer pick nick on a flower field! Complex, persistent, well structured and animating. A compact, characteristic Sauvignon blanc showing a nice potential. Develops beautifully in large glasses. Well suited for “long distance-evenings” – serious. Chef`s darling. Proves that a multi-layered Sauvignon blanc can do without new wood. Gains in quality if allowed.
To start with before the great Blaufränkisch vertical or even afterwards. Salad with young spinach, pignoli and fried yellow pepper, possibly with a piece of Neusiedlersee zander. Stinging nettle soup with honey pockets. Greengages wrapped in bacon, ham with Balsamico pear. Fish dishes such as Alpine salmon with cooked celery, Tart of goat cheese with leek and goose berries. Avocado accompanied by all kinds of asparagus. To wait for Gordot or the main course. Fried olives and capers with fillets of pomelo.
