Training Form: Espalier
Vinification: After light pressing and low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel, the young wine is aged on the lees for five months before bottling.
Description: Light yellow in colour with gold highlights, with a delicate bouquet of exotic fruit, such as lychee, and roses. Forceful, yet well balanced, with a long finish.
Serving Suggestion: Chilled to 12° C, an ideal aperitif that also pairs well with risotto, shellfish and other seafood, or spicy Asian recipes as well as sharp cheeses.
The splendid and intensive rose aroma with light untertones of vanilla is enough to inspire even extremely spoilt palates. An impessive finish.
Toblacher pole cheese dairy Three Peaks, mild decent cut-cheese, matured at least 6 weeks.
The cheese, which is soft in texture and contains small holes, takes its natural, balanced flavour the creamy high-altitude milk which conceals all the fascinating secrets of traditional cheese-making processes in this area.
Recommended: To grilled fish and meat, full-flavoured cheeses and cold platters of sliced meats, or on its own for social drinking.
