A classic Trockenbeerenauslese style wine with profoundly forward aromas of honey, jasmine, apricot and honeysuckle, enhanced with peach, lime and sandalwood top notes. The concentrated fruit aromas carry over onto the palate, where they develop into flavors of ripe kiwi, pineapple, orange and vanilla cream, followed by a crisp, lingering finish.
"More Beerenauslese in style, the 2003 White Riesling Select Late Harvest Hoot Owl Creek Vineyard possesses 14% residual sugar and 9.2% alcohol. Offering abundant quantities of peach and apricot jam-like characteristics, it is fresh, lively, concentrated, pure, and beautifully well-balanced. It should drink well for 4-5 years.
