Sweet, concentrated, tropical fruit and oriental spice. Long and complex, great with blue cheeses!

I can imagine that this is what a botrytised Spätlese Feinherb Goldkapsel from a rich vintage would taste like. Complex, dense texture, just off dry, drinking dangerously easy.

Amazing Riesling. Rich, sexy and opulent. Big peach and apricot components, tropical flowers, lots of vanilla and cream, great balance and transparency. Made in a very natural off-dry style, which suits Mosel wines a lot better than a 'legally Trocken' profile.
