This is our tribute to the German Off Dry Kabinett Style.
Careful handling of fruit, light presses to retrieve only free run juice and natural settling to maintain the fruit expression. Cold fermentation with neutral yeast was arrested by chilling to -1c when acid/sugar balance was achieved. No acid was added to the wine.
Aromatics of citrus blossom and floral perfume notes. There is a natural balance and harmony punctuated by a subtle floral perfume between acidity and sweetness. Intense lime and mineral flavours add great length to the wine.
Best with seafood, spicy foods as in Thai and Indian dishes.
Enjoy now or cellar over the next 5- 6 years
