Wirsching 2020 Iphöfer Kronsberg Silvaner Alte Reben dry white wine

Wirsching 2020 Iphöfer Kronsberg Silvaner Alte Reben Premier Cru dry

Regular price £24.05

The Iphöfer Kronsberg in one of the top Franconian vineyards. It is a pure Keuper site, facing south, but cooler due to the air currents from the eastern forests. The Kronsberg wines are characterised by fine fruit, great harmony and elegance.

Their Keuper soil is a sedimentary rock of clays, interspersed with fine and thicker veins of gypsum. Kueper wines have power and a full body, like the opulent marshy landscape in which the rock was formed. The older the vines, the better this so-called "terroir" can be tasted: subtle fruity notes, a spicy, herbal aroma and a strong, mineral flavour that lingers.

With a 40% share, Silvaner is the most important grape variety there. They focus on Franconian dry Silvaners, i.e. within testable sweetness. With Silvaner, you can feel the soil in which it was grown. That is why it used to be called "earthy". Silvaner is the ideal wine to accompany food, especially where food is prepared as gently and mineral as possible.

Its aroma I multi-layered: the taste of wild herbs, subtle fruity notes of pear and apple together with an enormous density and length give this wine a complex structure. A wine with great sustainability and future.

Food recommendation: Asparagus, fennel, onions, potatoes, vegetable stew, vegetable casserole, light fish cuisine, chicken, veal.
