Monkey Morio, Hanewald-Schwerdt
Type: White Wine
Wine Region: Pfalz, Germany
Tasting Notes: Wonderfully perfumed nose with elderflower, apple and hints of pineapple. The wine has a very playful floral aroma, followed by a delightful light palate, true to the grape varietal.
Morio Muskat is an old, very rare variety which appeared in 1928. The monkey comes from a stuffed toy monkey that was found near the vines and left there, becoming a mascot for the vines.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Thai food & Sushi
