It is a fine, delicately aromatic dessert wine, with a light ruby color and an intensive nose of tea-rose. It is full-bodied and spicy-sweet on the palate. This wine pairs well with a wide variety of desserts, for instance, poppy-seed strudel or beignets.
The Lagrein has a fine and pleasant bouquet, reminiscent of violets. Its flavour is full, velvety and slightly bitter and it also keeps well. This is a wine that goes well with grilled and roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
Among the Vernatsch varieties, Grauvernatsch has particularly noticeable and delicate aromas. These light and agreeable character make it a pleasure to drink.
