Tasting Notes:

A delicate scent of strawberry is the first to reach the senses. Then the butterfly flutters in through the open window and shows itself in all its splendor: a slender stature with fruity wings of white vineyard peach and very delicate nuances of violets. Playful as it is, it enchants us with its invigorating acidity and stimulates further enjoyment after just the first sip. It's always fun, not just on mild summer evenings.

Pairing recommendations:

An all-rounder: Seafood, especially mussels e.g. gratinated scallops;
Braised pork belly; White asparagus dishes
