Haider Cuvée Spätlese 2017
Straw yellow in hue, on the nose you find multi-layered fruits like ripe yellow apples and pineapples.
On the palate there's a discreet piquancy, elegant fruit and a long, aromatic finish. Works perfectly with Asian dishes and crisp, tangy salads; any food where an interesting play of sugar and acidity will set the tastebuds tingling.
Gerhard Haider is the 4th generation to run the family business and, though he still calls himself the 'junior' winemaker, there have been drastic improvements in quality since he took over. Schooled partly at Alois Kracher, the quality and style of these wines is exceptional and yet they come in very reasonably priced.
