Tasting Notes:

This is the amazing reward for the painstaking hunt for only the finest shriveled (but Botrytis-free) golden grapes. Everything that is present in the Goldkapsel, and just a little bit more. The sultry aromatic nose opens with tropical fruit and enough smoky minerality to make your eyes water. Rich, luscious fruits are enhanced with a touch of wild honey, all of which makes the acidity shine that much brighter. Deeper, richer, wonderful. Excellent aging potential.

Serving Suggestions:

Recommended cellaring for at least 10 years to develop its full complex spectrum. Exquisite on its own, or serve with anything from a carefully curated cheese plate to the final grace note of a beautiful meal.
