Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Blended from 60% Pinot Blanc and 40% Oraniensteiner (a Riesling/ Sylvaner cross). Aromas of pear, orange blossom, golden apple and wet stone. Off-dry, medium bodied and slightly right on the palate with flavours including peach and pear, with a stony, mineral finish. Enjoy with tuna crudo topped with a citrusy vinaigrette.
Bold golden yellow colour, with a bouquet of pear, spices and pepper, orange and mandarin. Unique just like Oraniensteiner (a cross between Riesling and Silvaner), this is definitely a wine that gets even more unique with age.
