Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Beerenauslese opens with mild dried apricot and pineapple bouquet with hints of lemon and apple cider. On the palate, this wine is pleasantly sweet with beautiful medium acidity. It is also bright, balanced, and viscous. The flavor profile is pineapple and apricot blend with notes of lime, ripe peach, and green apple. We also detected hints of honey and ginger in the mix. The finish remains sweet and its acidity and flavors are extended for a very long time. The Panel would drink this dessert styled Riesling on its own or with Great Hill blue cheese. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A rich, honeyed dessert wine made from very ripe grapes that have been partially shriveled by "Noble Rot." This Beerenauslese (BEAR-en OWS-lay-zuh), exclusively from estate-owned vineyards, has a juicy mouthful of ripe fruits with a finish that is long and satisfying, but never heavy. It is perfect as an aperitif, with rich foods like foie gras, or with creamy desserts featuring fresh fruits.
