WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, pale intensity lemon, showing tears.
Nose: clean on the nose, with a medium intensity, youthful, with aromas of dessert apple and apple puree, a hint of melon, and some spiciness.
Palate: a dry wine, with medium acidity, a slight gummy grip, medium alcohol and medium body, with a medium intensity, with flavours of ripe green apple. A medium (-) length with a clean slightly gummy finish.
Quality: an acceptable quality entry-level wine, nevertheless well made, with balanced acidity and alcohol, which are in sympathy with the modest intensity of flavour. A simple wine with a simple aroma and flavour profile, with a modest concentration of flavour. This is a wine for drinking now, lacking the characteristics to develop further, and which should be consumed within 12 months.
BBR have a couple of Alsace wines which look interesting, but Franken seems a quality Sylvaner region worth looking at too.
