The nose shows flowers and fresh, exotic fruit (citrus and pineapple), apples, pears, some peppery spice and just a hint of toasty and nutty aromas. On the palate, this wine is dry and offers notes of grapefruit, pineapple, melon, and peppery spice. The wine is concentrated, with good grip, and has nicely-integrated acidity. Quite subtle and well-balanced, showing typical minerality and spice in the long finish.
Very versatile with food -- matches ideally with classic Austrian cuisine, such as Tafelspitz, Backhendl (Austrian fried Chicken), Wiener Schnitzel, or vegetables. When a bit more matured (3-5 years), try pairing with gratins, smoked salmon and trout, and Pan-Asian dishes.
