Drostdy Hof Adelpracht 2006

This wine is brilliant, light straw in colour with yellow and golden tinges. On the nose it shows ample tropical fruit flavours with nuances of overripe berries. This full-bodied wine has intense fruit flavours and a good balance between sugar and acid with a long lingering aftertaste.

An ideal companion with spicy oriental foods, lightly-curried fish, chicken and lamb or simply enjoy it on its own.
