Recently Wegeler started a new program to share their stocks of older vintage wines stored in their cellars at the estate. This new ‘Vintage Collection’ program allows consumers to enjoy wines that have been properly cellared under optimal conditions. Each of the wines is opened, tasted and re-corked before they are released. Additionally they are affixed with Wegeler’s contemporary logo, and are given an extra ‘Vintage Collection’ label to indicate the estate has recently released them. These wines have never before travelled meters from where they were born!
Round and mouthfulling, this wine has ripe, tropical notes of mango and pineapple, mingling with zesty ripe yellow citrus. The long finish is accented by the secondary notes only a maturing riesling can show. This is a unique wine experience.
Pairing: : Pairs wonderfully with spicy sushi, chilled shellfish, foie gras terrine, arugula salad, ceviche, tuna tartare.
