Concentrated and velvety on the viscous palate, this is a pretty sweet but highly refined and salty-piquant Auslese with an enormously long and concentrated finish. This is a wine to be served in 20 or 30 years, unless you like this bigger but balanced style at this early age. The wine seems to be less racy because the acidity is already integrated and provides structure for the sweet, stewed fruit, but it comes back on the finish and reveals the piquancy and precision of an Eiswein with botrytis. Tasted at the domain in April 2019. -SR collapse

My head was spinning before I even got the wine into my mouth! There, white raisin and glazed pineapple join the diverse elements anticipated from the nose. Viscosity and creaminess are partially offset by pungency and tang, leading to a finish that’s gaudy but incredibly tenacious and thankfully not excessively sweet. -- David Schildknecht collapse
