Oh, this wine is such a beauty.
Golden pale colour. Reductive winemaking ensures a fresh and charming nose with the elegantly moderate, yet remarkably outlined, scent of mild rose petals, a keynote of the variety. The palate shows a peach and passionfruit core surrounded by exotic spices and a dash of Villány’s minerality. The whole meet in a truly satisfying, balanced wine comparable to classic Alsace Gewürz but with a distinctive feel of Villány’s terroir. No wonder: Alsace has a granitic soil while Villány is rather more limestone, giving the wines less of a steeliness, more creamy charm. Pronounced mango is lingering in the finish, with round creaminess. Shows such an attractive floral bouquet all around, one glass will never be enough.
Will accompany perfectly pale Indian curry or Thai food. Can cope with spicy fish and chili.
