The name honors the date of the first Silvaner planting in Franken. Shades of pale gold glimmer in the glass as enchanting to the eye as the complex aromas are to the nose; a rich range of ripe yellow pear, peach, baked lemons and candied ginger peel together with the roasty, toasty notes of barrel aging. Creamy on the dry palate with a racy acidity and equal parts momentum and concentration. Beneath the barrel influence lies the classic Silvaner complexity and depth marked with plenty of curves and contours. A wine that rewards a bit of patience, and a large-bowled glass. Drink 2023 – 2033
The complexity will reward a pairing of savory mushrooms dishes, hearty venison medallions with fruit sauce; anything with figs or a finely spiced potato gratin.
