Winemaker's Notes

This classical Bernkasteler Badstube Spatlese appeals not by power but by elegance. This wine shows floral, herbal and fruity aromas as well as emphasized mineral and acidic flavors which give the wine a very good structure.

Critical Acclaim

"Elegant, with rich citrus overtones to the passion fruit, melon and baked pineapple flavors. A touch languid, with notes of lemon cake and white chocolate that linger on the rich, well-honeyed finish."
93 Points

"Supple aromas of cling peach, sweet lime and wild herbs. The rich, deep, velvety passion fruit flavor is animated by an elegant acid backbone that gives the wine poise. Ends on a delicately spicy note."
90 Points
