This is a complex wine - it has just the slightest hint of botrytis on the nose along with blossom and cracked white pepper. On the palate the wine is rich, dense, and complex, with good minerality and a malty delicate spiciness with a hint of mint. Very long, slightly earthy finish.

Usually my favourite of all Alzinger wines and alas, I am not the only one! Small allocations.

Serve at 10-12°C
