Tangerine honey, grapefruit sugar, with peonies, the most perfect, spun cotton candy, chamomile, pear and apple and almond and hazelnut, chutney, and toast with a nano marmalade containing frozen peaches. The exquisite peach blossom honey, chamomile, sultanas, elderberry, gooseberry, quince, dried starfruit and lime. Incredibly layered in folds of dried and concentrated richness. #riesling #deutschewein #wein #beerenauslese #dessertwine #botrytis — a year ago
F&#K YES. Ultra stoked to be drinking some older wine, especially when it’s a 40+ year old Beerenauslese Riesling, which has been impeccably stored by my buddy Pat since he bought it in the 70’s. Not sure if it was an expensive bottle back then, but it’s damn glorious today. On the nose, there’s a ton of honey, golden raisin and tiny little accent of balsamic (in a good way). Having aged this long, all the sugars and acid have melded and broken down into each other, and it’s not too sweet, but shows good fruit character. There’s some nuttiness but not oxidized really. I get ultra excited about old wine, and this was awesome.
It makes me want to lay down some of my own wine, but of course I always drink it too soon! #oldwine #beerenauslese #1975 #delicious #dontevencareitsdessertwine #PatO'Connor — 5 years ago
Vintage 2006 - Top of luck, but so difficult to describe this perfection. Heavenly sweetness totally in balance because it also has acidity. Some apricot, some butter, creamy. Just awesome. Festive bottle. Combined with green salad and quail mousse. #riesling #rieslingforever #beerenauslese — 4 years ago
#Rieslings from the #Rheingau region produced in the legendary #1976 vintage are still going strong as was recently proven by this little bundle of joy from a half bottle, no less--that's the good news--sadly this estate closed its doors following the '96 vintage, which makes treasures like this lovely Kiedricher Wasserrose #Beerenauslese all the more precious! #goldkapsel

One of the most impressive middle #Mosel late-picks imaginable--HELLO--did someone say "#BEERENAUSLESE"???
You bet. Yet it's an #Auslese... with immense concentration. Perfectly balanced between ripeness, concentration and acidity... the ultimate #Riesling poetry. A butt-kicking triumph and an #auction cuvée at that! #GransFassian #Trittenheim #Apotheke #longgoldkapsel #2005

1945 Deidesheimer Kränzler, #Beerenauslese, von #BassermannJordan:
as close to perfection as a late-picked #Riesling (or any varietal) could possibly be!!!Absolutely sublime balance between sweetness and acidity that no doubt preserved it these past 70 years. Medium deep amber color with an aroma and flavors of caramel and coffee together with a hint of molasses...the finish lingered indefinitely...from the Fois gras course all the way to dessert--CRAZY GOOD!!! — 6 years ago
