Straw gold. Heavy. Fruity and petrol driven nose. Nice richness in the mouth. More fruit than acidity. Great with all the food. Still has its baby fat.

Still so young that it’s almost a shame to drink now...almost. Incredible combination of power and feather-lightness

Most interesting Wine of the night. When tasted 31 years of age. Slightly maderized, cheesy (Gorgonzola), beeswax and earthy forest floor aromas. Palate is medium dry, absolutely delicious with its fresh acidity and spritz and 'Himmelreich's' crushed rock like minerality. Try with 'Le Conquerant' Camembert cheese or on its own as conclusion of a long night.

Superb. If you gotta drink an Auslese young, might as well be this. Graach also shows much better in infanticide situations.
