Lush and smooth as well as refined and piquant on the palate, this is an incredibly fruity and mouth-filling Auslese with great finesse and a lightweight but intense and aromatic body. The finish is intense but delicate, full of layers and finesse. A gorgeous Auslese from the Rausch in Saarburg. Tasted in April 2019. -SR collapse

The lush, satiny palate takes on a concentrated dried-fruit aspect in its evocations of quince, pear, mirabelle and white raisin. Hints of fruit pit piquancy add welcome counterpoint, while lime and grapefruit inject welcome juiciness on a lasting, multilayered, albeit neither florally nor minerally inflected finish. -- David Schildknecht collapse
