This displays perfect botrytis on a bright, pure, fresh and delicate bouquet full of ripe stone and citrus fruits as well as notes of crushed stones. It is fascinatingly fresh and salty-piquant on the palate, with pronounced acidity; this is a sweet but weightless Auslese with acidity that cuts through fruit and slate and tickles the tongue. This is a highly stimulating and crystalline Auslese that is impossible to spit out. Simply amazing! Tasted at the domain in April 2019. -SR

Oily and rich in the mouth yet animatingly bright, it finishes with blazing penetration, mouthwateringly salt-tinged and lent invigoration by nips of crystallized ginger. -- David Schildknecht
