Direct pneumatic pressing (vertical drains to obtain high quality juices), clarification, controlled fermentation temperatures, racking and maturing on fine lees for 4 months. Ageing in vats for 5 months before bottling.
Whether dry, light, smooth, or fruity, Sylvaner is a variety suited to simple dishes, as well as being thirst-quenching. It pleases anybody appreciating dry white wine. This offering sports an attractive brilliant golden robe with green tints. Refined and exhaling generous freshness, its nose develops crunchy and cool white flower and herbal tea aromas. Following a frank attack, it remains round, generous and develops good volume on the palate. Well-balanced, the finish is pleasant, fresh and lengthy.
This Sylvaner goes well with sauerkraut, hors-d'oeuvres and appetisers. It has all of the freshness and character required to pair with a nice shellfish or seafood platter, in particular oysters. It goes particularly well with all sorts of cold cuts. This Sylvaner is well-bred, it can easily replace a Riesling with any type of fish.
