Wine Review: This pale straw colored Beerenauslese from Dr. Loosen was well received by the panel. It opens with a faint peach like bouquet with hints of orange blossom and pineapple. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused mild apricot with a hint of lemon, honey, and peach. The finish is semi-sweet and lingers nicely. The panel suggested pairing this special Riesling with a broiled sea scallops appetizer. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Beerenauslese (pronounced BEAR-en OWS-lay-zuh) means "berry selection" in German. It is an intense, ultra-concentrated dessert wine made from hand-selected grapes that have been shriveled about halfway to raisins by botrytis (the "Noble Rot"). BA has the same minimum must weight as Eiswein, so they have about the same sweetness. But BA has the distinct honeyed character that comes from botrytis, giving the wines a more complex aroma and a lusher texture.
