More about this wine

Food matches
Would be a great companion to savoury baking, meat or vegetable pies and (especially) quiches, but also crepes. Freshwater fish "meuniere" and summer salads. Amazing with chinese food and bold sushi.

Beautifully clean yellow in colour with plenty of ripe pear, red apple and spicy quince on the nose. The acidity is still very fresh and combines with the pear flavours to create a sour pear drop taste that is delicious. The hint of Braeburn apple comes later. The finish is not long but still delightfully sherberty.

This would pair very well with mild ginger Thai dishes or with scallops or cod. Otherwise, drink as a lovely aperitif.
