- The Wine
Although it's classifed as a Spätlese, the 71g/l of residual sugar does not make this wine overtly sweet, rather giving another dimension to the fruit.
Best drunk chilled to 8-10°C.
Flo says of the 2012 (July 2018) Notes of grass immediately hit the palate with a savoury sweetness. Sun-ripened apricots and the smell of an English garden comes to mind.
Serving Suggestions:Goes well on its own or with pasta, lightly spiced (e.g. Thai) dishes or cheeses.

Excerpt from British Pie Week: 9 Pies and Affordable wines to match
Apple and Ginger Crumble Pie
An adaptation of your favourite desert that Grandma used to make (or still does!). Well, this week the batons been handed down, so time to get on it. Lashings of thick jersey cream or vanilla ice cream on the side and don’t forget the secret component, a hearty sprinkling of brown sugar on the lid for that added sweetness and crunchy texture.
You want a wine that isn’t going to overpower with too much sweetness and has a fresh element that will work really well with the cream/ice cream. Probably our most out-of-the-box wine today and for good reason. Traminer Spätlese is a lovely semi-sweet Austrian wine, packed full of ripened stone fruits like apricots, peaches and nectarines alongside fresh hibiscus and roses.

Tasting NotesOn the palate there is good Traminer spiciness, nectarines, fresh kiwi fruit, fruit driven sweetness and good minerality all wrapped up in a fabulous creamy texture.
