History: Produced for the first time in 1999, our " Cresta " has created a stir since its inception, which is evidenced by the many awards and distinctions at national and international wine competitions.
Vineyards: The "Cresta" grows at the Kristplonerhof est ate in Guncina. The name should bring to mind the former appellation of the region "cresta piana" which has turned into the "Kristploner". Only the best grapes are selected as a foundation for this wine.
Vinification: The grapes are dried for 5 months and then they are pressed.
Description: The result is a sweet, golden wine, with an aroma of exotic fruits, orange zest and honey. The "Cresta" tastes very good with sweet dishes and very strong cheese, especially with blue cheese like Roquefort and Gorgonzola. Sweet wines can be aged for a long time and are drunk at a temperature between 12 and 14 °C.

The wine displays its extraordinary personality and depth in its bright amber colour. After the first, intense notes of apricot and peach, come sweet sensations of dried fig, honey, herbs and mineral notes. Impressive on the palate with an outstanding complexity due to a fusion of sweetness, tastiness and softness. A prolonged finish.
Deep, rich yellow tinged with green through to straw yellow. lightly spicy with a discreet aroma reminiscent of lime tree blossom, pear and banana. It is a rich, assertive wine. excellent aperitif wine and goes well with lightly flavoured first courses, fish and onion soup.
