Colour: Riesling wine
After we decided that the colour was that of a Riesling wine we were surprised to find a number of hallmarks from this very ‘terroir-expressive’ grape. A minerality, wet slate, cement dust, peaches, apricots, cream crackers and a hint of warm candle wax. The taste was fresh and citric like a palette cleanser in between courses with a pleasant dry finish. Water changed it somewhat; more creamy and sweet, vanilla slices with a hint of floral perfume. We have gone from a dry ‘Kabinett’ to a sweet ‘Auslese’ Riesling wine. The taste was now like a refreshing apple, lime and ginger juice.
