Grape Variety |
A white grape more officially known as 'Grasevina' in Croatia where is is most widely planted.

ABV | 12.50%
Allergens | Sulphites
Style |
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).

Description

Welschriesling, this old central European variety is Straka’s favourite. Picked at perfect (drinkable!) ripeness, treated carefully and vinified in stainless steel. Vegetal aromas with green apples combine with ripe acidity and leave no doubt about its character. Welschriesling aromatic profile is similar to Riesling but it much lighter in body and fruit intensity

Food pairing

Smoked trout, salmon, fish carpaccio, thai food
