Whites of Central Europe ideal wines for winter

Whites of Central Europe ideal wines for winter | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

If ever there was time for white Hermitage, it would be near a roaring fire. (Again, balmy coastal folk, work with me here.) If your winter tradition is of the fondue sort, the mineral-laced white wines of the Alps, and their cousins from elsewhere, are in order. Istria's version of Malvasia has deep local roots, and there are grapes like Vitovska and Ribolla Gialla that have made their home near that northern notch of the Adriatic. What they share is a bridge between that lean mineral cut of the mountains and the richness and exoticism of ripe, fleshy grapes like Roussanne.

With an heart made of Pinot Noir AY Grand cru, bottled in September 2006 after a slow maturation in casks made from oak originating in the Argonne forest, this is a genuine Vin de Champagne, which reflects the history of its true origins.
