    Höpler Trockenbeerenauslese Feature Wine

    Posted by Carlee Wilson

    Exclusive Wine Dinner with Austrian winery Höpler

    Brian and the team at Le Chardon d’Or are honoured to announce on Wednesday 22nd of May we welcome host Louise Höpler of the Austrian, family owned, winery Höpler, to showcase a selection of wine from their multi-award-winning portfolio. Höpler wines have a clear signature. They tend to be delicate, elegant and high in minerality. They are excellent to drink on their own but versatile when it comes to food and wine pairing.

     

    Wine Feature: Trockenbeerenauslese

    Höpler Trockenbeerenauslese will accompany our final course. Better known by wine experts as 'liquid gold' we believe this wine may be the highlight of the selection of stunning wines we're pouring at this exclusive dinner.

     

    Wine Style

    Trockenbeerenauslese (literal meaning: "dried berries selection") is the highest in sugar content in the Prädikatswein category of the Austrian wine classifications. Trockenbeerenauslese wines, often called "TBA" for short, are made from individually selected grapes affected by noble rot.
