This spectacular boutique estate swings for the fences with this unctuous, botrytised, intensely concentrated auslese. Exceptionally clean, with brilliantly vivid tropical fruit, it’s perfectly balanced—powerful yet still elegant. Young and rich, it shows layers of concentrated, ripe fruit that lead to a tightly focused finish. Grab it up while you can.
Intrigues on the nose, offering tantalizing hints of smoke, nuts and honey. But this wine is thick and sweet, and it clings to the sides of the glass, defying attempts to shake it out afterwards. The gooey marmalade flavors finish long and sticky.
Rich, unctuous and low-acid, this Auslese impresses for its weight and sucrosity. Aromas and flavors of marmalade, honey, dried apricot and baked apple finish long and sweet. Despite the relatively low acids, it should age easily for at least the next decade. Imported by Classical Wines.
Starts off funky and stinky, like sweaty socks plus a little pineapple. Thankfully, it’s much more enjoyable in the mouth, providing rich sweet fruit balanced by bright acidity. If the initial off-putting aromas go away in time, this could rate as many as three points higher. —J.C.
