Here is another German wine. I bought it at Grateful Red, that wine store I mentioned in an earlier post. I told you I’d be pulling from their selections from time to time! This is a Silvaner – yet another varietal wine I haven’t had before. I’ve had Liebfrau(en)milch previously, of course. My but those “firsts” just keep adding up, don’t they? Hey, that’s a good thing!
Winemaker: Hans Wirsching
Appellation: Franken, Germany
Notes: This wine is a light bright yellow in the glass. On the nose I got a bright green apple and lemon scents. It has a lively, bubbly effervescence when first poured that actually created a little foam in the glass. On the tongue I thought this wine had a pleasant light viscosity. Flavors for me were primarily lemon, honey and green apple. Alcohol is 11.5%. Overall, I’d say it was pretty good in my book. And I feel confident it would pair pretty well with any seafood. I can especially imagine it going well with a spicy shrimp dish like Camarones Diablo.
