Sylvaner is an aromatic white wine produced from high vineyards in Trentino Alto-Adige. The grapes are harvested at the start of October, fermented in stainless steel with only natural yeasts used, and aged partly in stainless steel and partly in 30 hectolitre acacia barrels for 3 months.
Sylvaner ‘Praepositus’ by Abbazia di Novacella has notes of fresh juicy honeydew melon and pear, perfectly balanced with a complex herbal rusticity, thyme, oregano and a slatey minerality. Crisp but everso slightly rounded, this wine shows an elegant restraint and precision and a lovely long finish.
Best to be enjoyed with
Sylvaner ‘Praepositus’ by Abbazia di Novacella is great with light and delicate fish dishes like scallops or cod.
The Winery: Abbazia di Novacella
