We began our evening with drinks at one of the terrace bars beside the Spree, where I was able to enjoy my favorite summer cocktail, an Aperol Spritzer as we relaxed and watched the tourist filled riverboats float by.
The wine was fantastic and the tasting notes I have found perfectly describe its characteristics. “Grown in mineral rich, stony soil in the country surrounding the village of Frauenkirchen, a very warm and dry soil adds a mineral taste. The resulting wine is dark red with purple rim, peppery and fruity aromas in the nose, on the palate cherries and spicy notes with impressions of chocolate, fine, mild and full-bodied finish.”
While we waited for our meal to begin, munching on fresh artisan bread with flavored butter and a summer tomato Amuse-Bouche we enjoyed the view out the large open windows.
