Type: White Wine
Grape(s): Morio-Muskat
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

This is one of the favorite wines I've received from my subscription. Tropical flavors usually seem to accompany overly intense wines but this wine was subtle, I think playful explains it well. It's light and delicate, yet has a presence that can't be denied. Aromas of refreshing green apple, elderflower and something sweet, definitely tropical but I found it hard to pinpoint. With a long finish and low alcohol it's far to sip able, very delicious.
