This unusual Austrian wine was easily the most interesting wine of the night at Palate Press’ first Grand Tasting. The nose seemed rather simple and one-dimensional, but the palate showed surprising complexity. Berry fruit and candied cherries plus loads of pepper and spice made for a promising food wine. This is a great match for milder foods like baked chicken or even stronger broiled fish like swordfish.
