Elsterwit 2018

Our rating

7.5 /10
A gold coloured, off-dry wine with a rich aroma palate of tropical fruits, caramel, toast and nuts and quite intense flavours of honey and ripened, caramelized tropical fruits (pineapple, apricot). A fine wine to combine with paté, foie gras or a rich salad with grilled nectarins, goat cheese, walnuts and honey.

Tasting Notes

Wine tasting: 3 Mar 2020
Appearance
A clear, gold coloured wine with medium color intensity and clear tears on the glass
Nose
The wine has a clean nose, which is developing. The wine has a medium+ aroma intensity of tropical fruit, stone fruit, ripened peaches and clear tones of caramel, toast and nuts.
Palate
It is an off-dry wine with a medium level of alcohol and medium+ acidity. The wine is medium bodied with a medium flavor intensity. We taste a mixture of honey and tropical fruits (pineapple, apricot) that are very ripe, caramelized or flambéed. These tones of ripened tropical yellow fruit come with a light bitterness in the end. The finish is of medium length.
Quality Assessment
It is a good wine. It is ready to drink but it will further develop. The wine contains a lot of sweet fruit and has enough acidity for further ageing. A good combination with paté, foie gras or a rich salad with grilled nectarins, goat cheese, walnuts and honey.
