Light straw yellow, complex fragrance of sun-ripened yellow fruits, English tea-roses, a whole bunch of spices, clear and animating. Freshly picked flowers, greengage. young and full of aromas. Probably the best up to now. Pleasant fruit-driven sweetness in the upper Spätlese-range. Good Traminer spiciness. Aroma concentration on the palate. Nectarines, fresh kiwis. Finely chiselled. Makes much fun. A creamy fruit-drug, yet “easy-going” and modern.
Pasta with Thai-chili, coriander honey, soup of cardamom, mango-caramel-terrine, sorbets with fruit-spice-combinations such as greengage with cloves, delicate red mould cheese paired with chutneys, small goose liver balls and stewed apples, red mould cheese affinated almost to an “illegal” extent, as refreshment at “ladies meetings” or for men after they have done with red wine.
