Tasting Notes:

Fragrant notes of lemons, pineapple, lime, slate and orange blossoms lead into a rich sunset of creamy and exotic fruit flavors. A burst of ripe acidity blows a refreshing evening breeze to balance the luscious fruit intensity. And the last notes shimmer as the almost weightless finish lingers and resonates. While this Auslese is drinking well in its youth, it will continue to develop over the next 40 years into an even richer drinking pleasure.
