Staatlicher Hofkeller Würzburg, Rieslaner Spätlese 2016 Würzburger Stein, 750ml, 11.0 %vol
German Rieslaner, a cross breed of Riesling and Silvaner, harvested from the famous Wuerzburger Stein with fruity melted peach aromas.
Our Silvaner can simply be enjoyed on its own. Appreciated like this, it is ideal as an easy-drinking summer wine, but it also offers a light and delicate touch as an accompaniment to all kinds of shellfish (oysters, scallops, clams, etc.) ; lean and flaky fish (e.g. Flounder, Perch, Porgy, Fluke, Tilapia, Pollock, Haddock) ; charcuterie or smoked/cured meat ; fruity and slightly tartish desserts such as apple or rhubarb crumble. Rieslaner wine is best paired with food items such as Cheese, Cured Meat and Salads, as well as white sauce pasta and rather spicy dishes as its sweet fruitiness can tame the heat and opens up more flavours.
Great to combine especially with:
- Spicy Indian vindaloo or Thai curry
- Sichuan or Hunan cuisine
- Duck breast with a sweet fruit sauce
- Earthy venison medallion
- smoked duck breast
It is also absolutely gorgeous with desserts that have a good touch of tartness, like a grapefruit salad enriched with sweet liquor or rhubarb-crumble topped with a classic Italian Zabaione.
