Reviews of purchase "Schmelzer's" Weissburgunder, 2015
The wine shows a straw-golden color with an olive tint.
The taste of wine is clean, sophisticated, fresh, rich, with notes of ripe peach, orange and hazelnut, well-balanced acidity and mineral aftertaste.
In the bright aroma of wine, the shades of hazelnut harmoniously intertwine with floral nuances, touches of lemon, coffee and walnut oil.
The wine goes well with fish dishes and seafood.
"Schmelzer's" Weissburgunder - dry white wine made from Weissburgunder grapes. Harvesting is done manually after the berries have reached optimum ripeness. At the winery, the fruits undergo comb separation and then undergo vinification. Maceration in contact with grape skin lasts a day. Spontaneous fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks. In the middle of fermentation, the wine wort is mixed and poured into small oak barrels, in which fermentation ends, flowing into malolactic fermentation and aging for 24 months. Wine is not filtered before bottling.
