Special recommendation: In January 2019 the wine got a special recommendation by the famous Dutch wine writer Hubrecht Duijker. He wrote about this: It is a pretty sweet wine (over 26 grams of sugar per liter) with the sultry spice and some honey-like fruit characteristic of his grape. Just like Gewurztraminer from Alsace you can combine it with, for example, red cheese, and with Asian dishes.
