Cederberg Bukettraube 2005

Cederberg Bukettraube 2005

Semi-sweet with 23mg/l sugar, though not disturbing. Exotic and very delicate floral and fruit salad aromas, with a hint of honey / dried peaches and ripe muscat. All natural sugar with a bracing fresh finish.

Great partner to curries, spiced poultry, blue cheese or nicely chilled on terrace.
