From 100% botrytis affected fruit, and 10g/L acidity, this is one dynamic lil’ nectar!! “Super, superfine….tremendously dynamic interplay between its luscious tutti frutti fruit, dry extract/minerality, and driving acidity. The class of the Juffer Sonnenuhr!!!” A little * awarded here.
“This Auslese was harvested late from shriveled berries at 120° Oechsle from vines with minimal f yields. It delivers a rather restrained but very pure nose of date, honey, nut, apricot and strawberry on the nose. The wine is nicely zesty on the palate (the wine does have 10 g/l of total acidity) and leaves a superbly unctuous feel in the racy and complex finish. The after-taste is all about date and ripe exotic fruits as well as pink grapefruit. This is an amazing effort which proves pure and electrifying in its light “BA-Eiswein” style. 2026-2046” 95 points MFW
“This reflects a picking of grapes to a significant degree desiccated without botrytis, which shows in its striking clarity and primary juiciness, not to mention in measurable acidity high by vintage standards. Quince preserves, papaya and glazed pineapple are suggested on a penetrating nose and glycerol-rich yet animatingly bright palate. The botrytis element, surprisingly, really reveals itself only on the finish, which is honeyed and hints subtly at truffle but at the same time is sensationally vibrant. A rush of fresh grapefruit and pineapple leaves the mouth tingling and refreshed.” 94 David Schildknecht
