Have you ever had truffle-infused honey as an accent to a cheese platter? This wine transports me to that very amazing combination of flavors and sensations one gets with a simple bite of savory, nutty, cheese mixed with sweet, waxy honey and earthy, intense truffle. Bracingly high acidity in this off-dry wine make it anything but "desserty" in style. With subtle petrol and citrusy accents, it is Riesling-like in some ways, but much broader on the palate. A long, honeyed finish leaves the taste buds yearning for more. I'd serve this before before a meal on its own or accompanied by simple, salted nuts, or after dinner, with strong cheeses.
