Area: Beerenauslese, Pfalz.
Grape: Scheurebe, Riesling.
The juicy Scheurebe and Riesling grapes are left on the vines to develop a gorgeously intense sweetness and concentration of flavour.
Just wonderful with a huge slice of lemon meringue pie and a generous serving of cream. Perfection.
Nose: rich and sweet, with lots of dates and raisins. Dried figs and candied fruits. Plum jam. Kind of a liquid walnut cake. Hints of honey-coated almonds. It also has the typical peppery / liquorice sharpness.
Mouth: quite vibrant and velvety, with a nice elegance despite its high sugar contents. Molasses and treacle. Sticky toffee pudding. Dates and figs again. A slight acidity comes out towards the finish, with some peppery overtones.
Gold colour. Notes of toasted almonds, honey and a bit of smoke. Slightly caramelized on the palate, fresh and polished. Excellent as a digestive. Accompanies dessert, cheese, Christmas pudding and crystalized fruits.
