It is pale in colour with green hints that underline its characteristic freshness.
The bouquet is crisp and light : citrus, spring blossom, freshly-mown grass… while on the palate it is frank and agreeable, with a refreshing crispness.
Food pairing :
Light and delicate, Sylvaner goes well with shellfish (oysters, clams, cockles…) but also with fish, charcuterie… or just to quench a thirst ! It makes a perfect summer wine.
Enjoy it young, within 5 years, ideally between 8° and 10°C.
