Description

A wide array of intense fruit aromas is the hallmark of the Alias blend, and the 2017 version does not disappoint. No less than seven different grape varieties combine to produce an impressive range of aromas - lemon curd, fresh flowers, green apple, lime juice, ginger and exotic spices all leap out of the glass. On the palate fresh acidity combines seamlessly with a hint of sweetness, and the long finish shows further complexity through pineapple and honey flavours. A fantastic appetizer wine, Alias is best enjoyed chilled while in its youth.

24% Chasselas, 18% Riesling, 17% Muscat, 15% Gewurztraminer, 12% Pinot Blanc, 9% Pinot Gris, 5% Schonburger
