Our Notes: “Magna Dominica” translates to “Great Sunday” in Latin, and “Albus” means white referring to the blend of Riesling, Yellow Muskat and Auxerrois. Unlike the rest of the Kogl lineup which are vinified in stainless steel, the Albus is matured in traditional large wooden barrels and released after one year of ageing. While still fresh in nature, there’s a little added weight and roundness to be expected from the wood without pronounced wood flavors. Pale greenish and gold in color, the aromatics from the Muskat, stone fruit and body from the Auxerrois, and exotic minerality from the Riesling create a harmony of flavors where each instrument can be heard without needing to compete against one another. Pairs beautifully with Indian and Asian cuisine with plenty of acid to cut through heavier sauces and soups.
