Donauriesling 2021Current Wines | Wines from 2021
Donauriesling is a new grape variety that was created by crossing Riesling with fungus-resistant vines. As early as in the 1970s, efforts were made to combine the great quality potential of Riesling with the robust growing characteristics of American vines, and only 40 years later, the results of these efforts are now arriving in viticulture. A direct comparison with Riesling reveals many similarities with subtle differences. In blind tastings, however, it has already happened to us that we no longer knew which wine was in which glass after a while. We think that this is quite extraordinary!
The Donauriesling offers a fine scent of fresh stone fruits. On the palate it is firm, with beautiful, not too sharp acidity and a harmonious overall impression. The finish is persistent and sparkles with charm.
Goes very well with light vegetable and poultry dishes, casseroles and cold buffet.
