Semi-sweet and therefore deliciously fresh and juicy.
Liebfraumilch is a semi-sweet wine that can be made in the wine-growing regions of Rheinhessen, Pfalz, Rheingau and Nahe. And not in the Moselle. The meaning is literally 'milk from our dear lady'. The name comes from the vineyards of the Liebfrauenkirche in Worms, where the first Liebfrauenmilch was made, as the spelling in Germany often is. The wine must consist of at least 70% riesling, sylvaner or müller-thurgau and it must have 18-40 grams of residual sugar in it, to create a classic semi-sweet wine, as many wine drinkers know it. Deliciously German white, classic and tasteful.
Wonderful to enjoy on its own, fine as an aperitif. Possibly with a snack, such as a salad with pieces of fennel and orange.
