Made from an early picking of botrytized grapes from the Bernkasteler Lay vineyard, this is a sweet, plump wine, filled to the brim with lush tropical fruit flavors. The aromas show remarkably pure pear and pineapple scents, with just a touch of dried apricots but also a sense of slate-driven minerality. With 300 cases imported, it should prove relatively easy to find.
An affordable BA, presumably from a variety of vineyard sites, this is relatively light in body, but it’s still a sweet little wine. Fresh apple and citrus aromas and flavors fold in touches of cinnamon, finishing clean and fresh. The bright acidity suggests this may work best as a foil for foie gras or cheeses rather than as a true dessert wine.
