2019 Wijngaard Bilderhof Cuvée Wit
The Cuveé White from Wijngaard Bilderhof from historic Dordrecht is a blend of the Johanniter and Muscadel grapes. The wine was aged for 5 months in French oak. There is a good balance with good acidity. It is a fresh semi-sweet white wine. The Johanitter gives it nice fresh acidity and the muscat roundness and some sweetness, which makes this a light to semi-sweet wine.
This wine tastes excellent on its own (standalone) but is also very pleasant to drink with a meal. Drink this wine at around 8 degrees.
It is becoming a trend: Viticulture in the Netherlands and with climate change it is expected that the Netherlands may eventually become an important producer. We have a beautiful Dutch winery in our range, namely Wijngaard de Bilderhof from Holland's oldest city, Dordrecht. The winemaker Wilco Venhuizen has a beautiful vineyard and, unlike many Dutch hobbyists, has chosen to select grapes that do particularly well in our climate, such as the Dornfelder, the Rondo, the Cabernet Cortis and the Johnanniter. These grapes thrive in our climate and produce very unique white and red wines.
