This is a lovely grape, though little known in the UK. The wine is 100% certified organic and has just enough oak to make itself known but not overwhelm the flavours from the grape.

Light eastern spices, notably turmeric and coriander, mingle withapricots to give a real feel of Arabian promise. In the mouth the apricots meet peaches while greengages add acidity to the mix.

The spices make me want to serve this with a Tagine but obviously it can accompany anything you'd enjoy an oaked white with.

Rotgipfler is a natural cross of Traminer and Roter Veltliner.

Tasted by Tim on 28th April 2021

Appearnce: Pale gold

Nose: Red apple peel intertwinned with a rich resinous aroma

Palate: Dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, medium plus body and a lovely long finish.

Pronounced intensity aromas of ripe red apple peel and red apples, white currants mirabelle plums. Some spicy notes too with a hint of star anise and some dried guava/pineapple with a hint of cedar.

A really excellent wine showing some interesting development and offering excellent value for money. Would be fantatsic with a Moroccoan tagine or rich brown crabmeat linguni.
