This wine is inspired by the great wines of Germany, particularly the Mosel's Kabinett and Sptlese styles. Because of the wines low alcohol and due to the sometimes peculiar PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) rules of the UK/EU we are unable to refer to the grape type on the label. Hence we have derived our name from the Cornish translation for the grape Schonburger, which means 'pretty/sweet hill'. Mena = hill, Hweg = nice/sweet. We hope you can get your teeth around it! The wine is a light green in the glass with delicate floral, citrus and peach like aromas. On the palate, although the wine carries a residual sugar of 38g/l it is well balanced by the grapes natural acidity, which gives a tension and vibrancy and leaves the finish clean and crisp, rather than cloying. Although these styles are often misunderstood by the general public they are wonderfully versatile; though not sweet enough for a dessert wine, it can be enjoyed as an aperitif, a mid meal palate cleanser, or with a whole range of foods, including Asian, salad dishes and especially savoury dishes that carry fruity or sweet elements.
