Winemaker's Notes

"Like the corresponding Kabinett, this shows considerable delicacy along with its pure, healthy ripeness, and the classic Sonnenuhr building blocks of apple and vanilla in spades. This is creamier and richer in texture than the corresponding Kabinett, with more underlying vanillin. The counterpoint of delicate acids and spritz with creamy richness is a delight. The bitter side of vanilla and the wine's overtly wet stone slate character help add interest to the finish and provide contrast to the sweetness.
