The Sämling grape variety, also known as Scheurebe in Germany, is used by the Salzl winery as a reliable sweet wine supplier. Depending on the vintage, unbelievably inexpensive wines are produced here, from the Spätlese to the Trockenbeerenauslese. In 2022, the Seewinkelhof again had a beautiful white Spätlese (formerly Sämling Spätlese) with a lower alcohol content than its predecessors, which is therefore a little livelier and fresher. This year, in addition to the seedling, it also contains some Chardonnay and Bouvier. It grew on black clay soil with a high proportion of gravel in the Martenhof site and was aged on the fine lees in steel tanks. With its juicy fruity sweetness, this wine has many fans. A baroque white wine on the one hand, but which never appears clumsy or opulent, as it has an elegant acidity that counterbalances the sweetness. It is full of aroma and reminiscent of citrus fruits, pineapple, peach, caramel and elderflower. Lots of sweet winefor little money!A bargain.
Serve with chicken or rabbit liver, cream cheese spread, seafood or lighter desserts like fruit salad or fruit cake. A feast for the palate.
