About

Sylvaner is rare Alsatian grape that's found a happy home on the cool slopes of the King Valley. It's picked early by winemaker Syd Bradford, brought to the winery and pressed on top of freshly pressed Gewürztraminer skins. This adds a little grip and also gives a super charge to the perfume, very shrewd winemaking there by Syd. This wine is a fresh and frisky young thing that it ideally suited to fresh seafood or as a cool tipple on a warm afternoon. Crisp, clean and sly personality; this is a lovely and interesting wine.

What it Tastes Like

Rose hip tea, some floral notes, the smell of fresh peeled lychee. It's a delicate waft of aromas but an enchanting one. The palate tastes of lime, green apple and stones. It's crisp and has a little crunch to the acidity. A charmer of a wine. Whispers rather than yells.
