Naked White is ideally suited to modern cuisine and creative cooking. A short maceration on the skins and extended time on the lees results in a textured wine with a subtle tannic grip that can complement dishes built on multiple ingredients or feature complex flavors. The wines are equally at home with straightforward dishes using minimal ingredients.
Naked White is cloudy when poured into the glass and Gernot recommends a gentle shake before serving. This Chardonnay-based blend features the structure and salinity typical of the Leithaberg’s limestone terroir enhanced on the nose by the inclusion of aromatic varieties like Muskat Ottonel and Welschriesling. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, fine herbs, sea salt, and apple pastry.
