2010

Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
8 %

Notes

Whilst there is clearly more sign of botrytis here than in the Auslese the colour is beautifully translucent and bright tinged with shimmering green, the palate echoes the colour in the wine's electric freshness and pinpioint precision, this is a spellbinding BA, big and rich as you would expect a Rheingau BA to be, with a whopping 220g/litre of residual sugar, but so vibrant and clear too, notes of citrus rind, lime marmalade, orange blossom honey, salt and mineral, perfectly weighted. The acidity is a huge 17g/litre like 1996 but with a much riper fruit profile.

Notes
Golden yellow. Musky aromas of peach, butterscotch and cinnamon rise above the honeyed botrytis. Full-bodied caramelized fruits overwhelm the palate, only just balanced by the wine's oyster shell salinity. Succulent sweet nectarine pervades the finish. This wine still needs time.
