The Wine


I delight in glass stoppered bottles. There is something elegantly magical about them and the stoppers are pretty objets d’art in themselves. I damped down my natural bias towards the beautifully capped wine and opened it. Immediately the bias flooded back but for more vinous reasons.

The aromas filled the room almost in an instant. Fresh honeyed and rich with high notes of citrus and a hint of spiciness. Mouth-watering before it had even reached the glass.

The golden-yellow colour is as bright as possible and is intensely clean and clear. It is a wine to be looked at and admired for its aesthetic beauty before any tasting can begin.

The aromas that had arrived upon opening were, naturally, more pronounced and concentrated in the glass and even more enjoyable.

This is a texturally soft wine which caresses the tongue and the mouth and is very well balanced. The spiciness is more prominent on the palate but does not overwhelm the flavours of white stoned fruit – apricot and a touch of peach. There is plenty of acidity but it only becomes apparent after the wine has been swallowed, helping to sustain the long finish of the fresh fruit.

If a wine can be both delicate and robust at the same time, then this Rotgipfler is exactly that. It has a full body but such a gentle refinement that is rarely found elsewhere. This is a real treat that should be tried by anyone who loves really good wine.

Goes extremely well with patés, foie gras, with pork dishes and veal, with fish and seafood. Can hold its own with wild game as well as an alternative to red wine. A good wine for asian dishes too.
