A unusual German grape, popularly grown in England, Schönburger is a hybrid of Pinot Noir and another grape, itself a hybrid of Chasselas and Muscat Hamburg. An appealing aromatic dry white wine. A lovely accompaniment to fish, chicken and sauce based dishes.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
‘Danebury is an expert producer of this floral, enchanting grape and this delicious white wine is one of my favourites ever made from this variety. The perfect aperitif style wine, it is also delicious with smoked salmon and seafood starters. It is the vinous equivalent of a lazy stroll through the beautiful English countryside in bloom.’ Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail 11/5/19 @matthewsjukes www.matthewjukes.com.
Danebury’s Schonburger is a wonderfully restrained white wine, with flinty, mineral notes backed up with lemon pith, pear and red apple. The body is supple and elegant, with a bright acidity that harmonises well with the ripe fruit aromas. The palate continues to show delicate flavours of pink grapefruit and honeydew melon and the finish is lean, crisp and plentiful.
