Medium-bodied, dry. Lemon and flowers on the nose precede a palate of pepper, apples, and gooseberry. The finish is citrusy and stony with just enough sugar-fruit balanced with bright acids. Pair with fried food, Indian and Asian cuisine, young cheese with fruit, and German sausages with kraut and potatoes.
This white grape is widely grown in Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia. As a wine, it is food friendly and has beaten top Chardonnays in blind tastings.
