A textbook example of aged Riesling, this is still so fresh and vibrant with lemon cream, angel food cake, lemongrass and a hint of white pepper on the nose. While the entry has a touch of sweetness, it is well balanced by the acidity, resulting in a fresh and zippy profile. The flavors are consistent with the aromas, with the addition of tropical notes. This comes across as amazingly youthful despite the 15 years of bottle age. This is an incredible wine at an unbelievable value. The ABV is 8.5%. Drink now and over the next 10-15 years.

At 16 years of age this is showing beautifully, with a lively, light straw gold color. The aromas have just started to enter secondary stages with notes of smoke and wet stone, leading into a classic Mosel wintergreen mint/petrol character, while still showing youthful qualities of ripe peach and white floral notes. There is a rich creaminess on entry, leading with baked apples and quince, followed by a bright cut of acidity and wet slate. The richness of the Auslese is braced by the signature freshness/acidity that made 2001 such a legendary vintage. This is spectacular now and will continue to hold strong for another decade or more.
