The grapes for this Grüner Veltliner Eiswein (ice-wine) were handpicked at -12°C from weathered sandstone soils in the vineyards of Lower Austria. Bright golden yellow with an intensely tropical perfume with nuances of lychee and pineapple, the opulent sweetness on the palate is balanced by a lively and elegant delineated acid structure.
Honey, more lychee and ripe quince add a mellow sweetness to the complexity making it wonderfully drinkable when young but also a viable vintage wine capable of ageing up to 15 years and beyond.
This would make an excellent match not only for rich desserts, but also for goose liver pâté and blue veined cheese.
