A wine of clear amber color, with a dense texture and slowly slipping tears.
Its accentuated and fine aromas are reminiscent of boiled apple, quince, apricot and ripe pear. Scents of dried meadow flowers are joined by a hint of candied citrus, hay, nutmeg, white pepper, vanilla, honey, with the finish being especially herbal, with hints of lemon mint and thyme.
The palate feels soft, though it is quickly balanced by lively freshness, minerality and a slight astringency from tannins. The taste is intense, full-bodied, and with an accentuated, long-lasting elegance
A wine that we enjoy already now, but it will easily wait for many more years in the cellar, as indicated by its freshness and astringency.
It will go well with lamb racks in herbal clothes, pork shanks or ribs, also with angus beef tenderloin with miso paste and sauteed vegetables, or as an accompaniment to a good hamburger, which we assembled with selected and first-class ingredients.
