This intense Spätlese bears the characteristic purity of the vintage. It is very ripe and juicy, with a mouth-filling richness that is balanced by a firm, typically spicy minerality. At the end, there is a lovely lift to the dry finish.
"Racy and well-structured, with some tropical fruit overtones of mango and fresh pineapple to the core of grapefruit and Key lime flavors. Pastry notes are accented by creamy elements on the long, rich finish. Very bright. Drink now through 2026."
"Subtle bouquet of gooseberry and nut oil, with a trace of something floral. On the palate the creamy papaya flavor is counterpointed by citrus and slate. The persistent finish features an amalgamation of spices and mineral salts."
