Dostert Karambolage 2020
The 2020 Karambolage was made from young vines (planted in 2014) and is an equal blend of Elbling and 10-days skin-fermented Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris). It's made along natural lines, i.e. without any intervention, bottled unfiltered and with little SO2 added (20 mg/l). This salmon-pink colored and slightly cloudy wine offers a beautifully aromatic and lightly oxidative nose of apple jelly, almond and hazelnut, orange zest, strawberry, rose, and minty herbs. It proves quite zesty but also well-structured and delineated on the palate. The finish is beautifully crisp, refreshing, pure, and very long.
