WINE REVIEW

It might not be the most well-known grape variety, but Schönburger is an early ripening German white grape variety that is believed to be a cross of Pinot Noir and (Chasselas X Muscat Hamburg). The grapes can develop distinctive vibrant pink skins at full ripeness.

This wine has a wonderful aromatic nose, with aromas of toasted lime zest, pineapple and pear with a delicate floral perfume.

At just 10.5% alcohol, the wine has a similarly delicate flavour profile, starting with green apple and pear with a little citrus bite.

A light tropical fruit character develops, the aromatic character of the nose does not manifest itself so noticeably on the palate. A slight off dry finish makes this a thoroughly enjoyable glass of white wine.
