Winemaker's Notes

A very elegant, fruity, aromatic wine with fresh acidity. This Spätlese has good aging potential: at least 10 years.

Critical Acclaim

"This delicate wine is waif-like and virtually ephemeral on the nose, with subtle scents of mineral, fresh greens, citrus and apple. In the mouth, it shows similar finesse, striking a fine balance between sweetness and tart green-apple and lime flavors. Finishes long, accented by bright citrus notes."
