This gold-capsuled Auslese is sweet and fruity, highly elegant and with great finesse; it has a piquant acidity and ripe pineapples aromas, but also reduced botrytis flavors. This is a very delicate and elegant Riesling with a lovely, clear and lean, mineral character. Great finesse and delicacy here. - Stephan Reinhardt

We’ve had lovelier Auslesen, but when it’s constantly humid, you get negative infection and can’t expect more than this.” A faintly fungal note accents apple jelly, glazed pineapple, candied grapefruit rind and caramel on the nose, leading to a colorfully complex but rather opaque as well as decidedly confectionery palate impression. The finish is forcefully sustained but lacks the primary juiciness and salinity that might have leavened the wine’s sheer thickness and overcome slightly rough and unruly manifestations of botrytis. “The Brücke Auslese would probably have been better than this if only those grapes hadn’t gone kaput on us,” quipped Dönnhoff. -- David Schildknecht
