This wine is both spontaneous and light, adopting a direct approach without caring about embellishments.
Frank and direct by nature, Sylvaner is above all a refreshing wine to be shared without any frills along with plates of charcuterie or with a fuss-free quiche or onion tart. Nothing can beat this wine for a better partner of simple and authentic dishes with its verve and easy-going charms. Which is why it’s also so perfect when accompanying a Savoie fondue or raclette.
Since Sylvaner wines like to play many roles, it is also an ideal partner for shellfish. Since they are not headily perfumed, they are particular suited for the sea brine flavours of oysters and other delicacies from seafood platters. Mussels, snails and grilled fish also benefit from being paired with these mouth-wateringly and subtly fresh wines.
Although it’s often difficult to make wine and vinegar mix, Sylvaner does wonders with salads and crudités by providing gentle vegetal and fresh notes while staying the course.
