Regular price £22.90

Silvaner Alte Reben (Old Vines) fascinates with its intensive taste and minerality.
In general, the appellation"Alte Reben" defines the wine's age of the least 20 years. In the estate, the grapes used for making such wines come from vines with an average age of 40 years. Ols vines have thick and much deeper roots enabling them to take up more extracts and minerals from the soil then your plants. That gives the wine its powerful character.
The complex flavors are extraordinary, the fragrance of wild herbs, unobtrusive notes of fruits like pear, and apple together with a concentrated taste and long lasting finish ensure a great pleasure. A wine promising a brilliant future.
This Silvaner suits perfectly to dishes with rich sauces, but also to roasted fish and seafood, poultry or veal.
This wine was awarded 90 points by the International Wine Challenge 2019: "Nettle and pear note with light chalk, creamy richness, and brick, lemony ending."
On the nose mineral notes, vegetative aroma and light nutty notes.
On the palate intense, dry and full-bodied, wild herbs.
