The “regular” 2017 Spiegel Gewürz is just nuts good. This VT sounds like a nectar-of-the-gods good example, a remarkable value given the amount of work and super low yields that it takes to make wines like this.
“Luminous golden-tinged yellow. The perfumed nose offers vibrant citrus, ginger, vanilla and mango aromas. Luscious but bright, boasting deep, complex tropical fruit, tangerine, orange blossom honey and sweet spice flavors. Finishes long and creamy, with persistent hints of marzipan lingering nicely. Harvested on the same day as the grapes that were used to make the “dry” Spiegel Gewürz (October 12, which is a late harvest by definition), but this was a selection of the ripest grapes hit by roughly 35% noble rot with very little passerillage presence. Outstanding VT with memorable acid/fruit balance (93 g/L r.s. and 4.2 g/L total acidity).” 96 Ian D’Agata
