Backsberg Family Reserve White 2015

Backsberg Family Reserve White 2015

A wonderful medley of coconut, peach and aniseed aromas combined with vanilla undertones on the palate and a creamy, long-lasting finish.

Rich cheeses, full-flavored and creamy food. Particularly compliments chicken and duck. This wine could make an ordinary toasted cheese sandwich look gourmet.
