Grape variety:  100% Sylvaner

Producer: Dr. Heyden

Alcohol content: 12%

Origin: Rheinhessen, Germany

Notes: FLORAL, CLEAN CITRUS, BRIGHT AND FRESH

Old vine Silvaner is a true rarity in Germany's Rheinhessen. While it remains the second most planted grape (after Riesling) in Germany and counts among its siblings some of the most famous white grapes of all (Chenin Blanc and Grüner Veltliner to name only two), it has always been in the shadows. In fact some have even accused it of neutrality. So, Frank Heyden quietly makes this from old vines, and the quality shines so brightly that all shadows disappear in a fresh, zesty, mouth-wateringly delicious wash of Silvaner-ish-ness. Juicy and floral from start to finish, this is a great example of coaxing the best from a grape.

Food Pairing: : We had this with Frank's mom's carrot soup, smoked trout, and artisanal cold cuts. Everything works with this Silvaner! Very versatile!
