    Profile
    Dried Riesling grapes and dried fruit on the nose. Distinct notes of raisin, apricot and concentrated peach grace the palate, rounding off this complete wine. A simply irresistible Auslese of wonderful freshness.
    Pairs beautifully with...
    Sicilian cassata cake with dried fruit; classic crème brûlée; or any hard cheese that is not too overpowering.

    The year started very wet with what seemed like three months of non-stop rain.
    Spring was warm and dry – ideal conditions for an early bud burst.
    Continuation: In Summer weather improved day by day. Only our youngest vines were a little less happy, as their roots have not yet reached the necessary depth to get through dry periods completely unscathed.
    When harvest-time came nature spoiled us with heavenly conditions and a “golden autumn”. Our fruit was outstanding at all quality and Prädikat wine levels. We were fortunate enough to select Trockenbeerenauslesen – the pinnacle of any vintage – from a number of different sites. The extra warmth resulting in exceptional levels of ripeness, flavour and minerality as well as excellent quantities.
    Summary: A sun-blessed year of superlatives!
