Wine Tip

Huxelrebe Auslese, sweet, 2009
This sweet dessert wine underscores the soft peach aroma. The bouquet, rich with tropical fruit, unfurls especially well when enjoyed between 8 – 10°C/50°F.

Peach crumble

Preheat the oven to 160°C/ 320°F. For the crumble, knead the cold, cubed butter with the flour and roughly two-thirds of the sugar with hands, or in a food processor, until it reaches a consistency similar to bread crumbs.
