Regular price £22.70

"This Silvaner is a classic and goes well with any occasion."

To the east of Iphöfen lies an independent mountain that was deforested in the Middle Ages and was therefore called "bald mountain". Here the gypsum content is higher and the wines are lighter in character.

Their Keuper soil is a sedimentary rock of clay interspersed with fine and thicker veins of gypsum. Keuper wines have power and full body, like opulent marshlands 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 Silvaner, you can feel the soil on 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 naturally as possible.

In the nose, it is discreetly fruity and finely aromatic, with a clear, slightly herbal-spicy character. The taste is balanced and rounded with a fine, pleasant acidity.

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