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 delicate in style, with aromas of lemon zest, ripe pears and honeydew melon under a veil of flinty minerality. There is a touch of white pepper spice on the palate which give a nice lift and energy to the wine, with more zesty and earthy notes developing the finish. Refreshing and elegant.
