36% Semillon, 20% Muscat, 20% Gewürztraminer, 20% Pinot Gris and 4% Chardonnay.
Exactly what I was expecting, although not quite as sweet (I think I was anticipating more Muscat); the Peter Lehmann Layers shows ripe pear, succulent peach and apricot. Tangerine and a little kiwi towards the middle and subtle spice (from the Gewurztraminer). Rounds-off with citrusy acidity and a smooth and thirst quenching finish.
11.5% alcohol is lower than I expected from this wine; therefore, since the alcohol is kept in check, you’re good-to-go on just about anything (within reason) that you can think of. Spicy Asian, Thai, Chinese, or Indian food, all the way through to delicate white fish, seafood, fruit salads and poultry.
