SOMMELIERS FEATURE

JOHANNES ZILLINGER VELUE WEISS
“GRÜNER VELTLINER, RIESLING, MUSCAT À PETIT GRAINS” 2022,
Niederösterreich, Austria
80
A composition of jasmine and roses, infused with
fruity notes of yellow apples and a fresh breeze of cool herbs.
The wine is a sensual experience with juicy fruitiness, fine tannins,
lively acidity and a hint of cumin on the finish.
