Asparagus Polonaise with buttered bread crumbs

The roasted, buttery aromas of this asparagus classic make wine matching easy: mature wines between 3 and 5 years old fit better than younger ones. The smooth Neuburger (no Botrytis and not too minerally), with its fine nutty nuances, is the perfect choice. Also exciting is ripe Weißburgunder, Zierfandler and Rotgipfler and – as always – a robust Grüner Veltliner.
