More about this wine

Jungherrn - the vineyard the novices took care of, to help pay for their upkeep. No novices were harmed in the making of this wine, though...

Ben says of the 2011 (October 2017): What a lovely wine! Very food friendly and easy to drink. Ideas for seafood recipies came flooding out as we tasted this wine. We settled on langoustines cooked with smoked butter.

This is a clean, lemon-gold coloured wine with long legs. Despite it's years there is still a lot of freshness and plenty of citrus on the nose and some tertiary notes coming through. A saké-like raspberriness hides in the background. In the mouth the wine retains plenty of acidity to balance the age and the flavours are packed with elegance. The tropics dominate with loads of banana, pineapple and melon and the hint of raspberry continues. The finish is long and very pleasant as the flavours return throughout.

Beautiful to drink on it's own and very good to match with food.
