The Elisenberg again….nectariffic in ’16!! This is technically a Beerenauslese, made from 100% botrytis affected fruit. Again, for the money, just a bonkers bonkers bonkers value. “Wild mint and honey on the aromatics, this cascades over the palate with cooling, luscious depth with that cool sense of mint and quartz minerality echoing on the looonnnggg finish.”
“The Elisenberg Auslese was made from 100% botrytis-affected fruit harvested at a whopping 110° Oechsle. It is still rather marked by reduction and sulfur at this early stage but, after a while, one notices already some great notes of date, pear puree, honey, grapefruit and white minerals lurking in the background. The wine is still non-saying at this early stage on the palate but the refined and subtle aromatic in the background already hints at stunning greatness to come at maturity. This is one of the few 2016 Auslese which does not shine in its youth. It does have immense development potential though. 2031-2046” 94+ MFW
