    Tasting Notes
    An intense nose of white flowers, yellow apple, citrus fruits and spices. You will be drawn in by the mouth-watering combination of ripe pear, lime and white pepper, ending in a sumptuous long finish. The character of the riesling grapes shine through, accompanied by a dynamic acidity and a perfectly round medium to full body, leaving little doubt as to this wine's award winning credentials. A complex and rewarding choice for wine lovers and connoisseurs.

    Food Pairing Recommendation
    It goes very well with poultry, fish dishes and seafood, like garlic shrimps in a creamy tomato sauce. Pair it with washed rind cheese like Epoisses, Livarot or Reblochon to bring out the best from both, and serve some fresh apricots on the side for a memorable experience.

    Serving temperature: 11°C
