Welschriesling is a neglected soldier in almost every wine cellar, as it is always used to complement other wines. They supress its character and its structure, but as a soldier it is always a fighter for others. The cellar adds it to other wines because he knows it won't disappoint him. It helps many wines to reach their perfection. We want it to show itself in all its capacity, with its pleasant taste, its significant smell and the specific note in the mouth. Often you just pour yourself another glass just to double-check that what you taste
is real. 12°C is the right temperature to enjoy it. Risotto and pasta taste better with a glass of Welschriesling.
