Blend of 50% Sylvaner and Pinot Blanc, 15% Gewurztraminer, 22% Pinot Gris, 7% Riesling and 6% Muscat. Aromas of fresh white flesh fruit and floral notes. On the palate flavors of pear and apple with notes of white flowers. Medium finish ending with fresh fruit with floral character.

Apricot, nectarine. Slight melon. Floral and aromatic. Light; off dry leaning dry. High and strong minerality with a crisp, lingering finish.

The color is super pale but the wine is intense with it's acid. Pinapple and peach on the attack. Slight spice. Perfect for german sausage and sauerkraut.

Dang. This is a pretty complex white. Honey and vanilla on the nose. Loads of tropical fruit up front. Overripe melon. Funky pineapple. But all this dissipates in seconds and gives way to a relatively clean middle with slight boozy astringency. This finishes with a slight pucker. Lime zest. And drying slate. I had this with Thai coconut chicken curry in summer. Paired perfectly. Not sure I’ve had a wine that’s so fruity and then incredibly drying. Fun one!
