Rivaner, fine dry, 2013
Thanks to its fine, fruity taste, a young Rivaner with aromas of fresh herbs and green apple goes well with poultry. The ideal drinking temperature of 8 – 9°C (46 – 48°F) best releases the fine minerality and nice spiciness of the young wine.
Preheat oven to 160°C/320°F. Season turkey with salt and pepper, both on the inside and outside. Cut bacon into fine cubes. Pick marjoram leaves and chop roughly. Cut white bread, celery stalks, and two-thirds of the apples into small cubes.
