Louis Riesling Schönburger
2016 Vintage
Louis Riesling Schon

Beautifully aromatic and refreshing with a dash of sweetness

The Schönburger grape was developed in Germany and is a cross between Muscat Hamburg, Chasselas Rose and Pinot Noir. The Schönburger clone, is a cross between Pinot Noir and Traminer, originated in New Zealand and was obtained by us 6 years ago. The berries are pinkish like gewurtztramminer and exude delicious lychee and tropical fruit aroma and flavours. The Schönburger grape suits the cold climates in that it ripens well and has soft acidity. The Riesling grape is a perfect blend partner adding floral aromas, citrus flavours and a lovely crisp acid spine.

Blended from 85% Riesling and 15% Schönburger it is not surprising that fragrant, floral and tropical fruit aromas erupt from the glass. The palate is a flood of citrus and tropical fruits harmoniously balanced with some residual sweetness and a cleansing crisp finish.

Food and Wine Combinations

The abundant fruity flavours, easy drinkability and dash of sweetness are perfect to quench a thirst  or to accompany the great variety of tastes in Chinese, Thai, Japanese and Indian dishes. Spicy hot dishes in particular work well!
