Fabulous high-toned aromas of apricot quince mango and honey complicated by notes of cinnamon and orange liqueur. Wonderfully glyceral yet tangy on the palate with a chewy quality and good acid thrust to the creamy honeyed flavors of ripe tropical fruits and lemon curd. Outstanding might not be a strong enough word to describe this extremely well balanced sweet wine. Check out these numbers: 186 g/l residual sugar and 8 g/l total acidity with a moderate 3.55 pH. -- Ian D'Agata

The Fallers’ 2010 Gewurztraminer Furstentum Selection de Grains Nobles leads with prickly pungency of lemon rind, radish, distilled pit fruit esters, white pepper cinnamon and crystallized ginger, all pointing toward the rather obvious and not especially refined expression of botrytis that follows on an expansive palate. To be sure, a richly honeyed and caramelized, confectionary cast informs an impressively persistent finish. But the tension between that sheer richness and this wine’s aggressively tactile manifestations of botrytis seeks a greater semblance of resolution; and the clarity or primary juiciness of the corresponding Altenbourg are absent here. Still, that is a high bar to set for any nobly sweet wine and this one is certainly complex, not to mention remarkable for its intensity and sheer penetration. Plan to follow bottles for at least two decades and along the way greater complexity and harmony (or more fruitful tension) might well emerge. - David Schildknecht
