  • Other Information:This is a very special Silvaner - he is out of 40 year old wines in one of the best sides of our vinery. After the harvest we pressed him with our old basket press and putted him in an old oak barrel where he was for one year. It's an old school and really interesting interpretation of Silvaner and of course he shows how different this wonderful grape variety can be. Juicy and fresh and how Silvaner should be.
