Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling opens with a lemon tea and honey bouquet with hints of dried apricot, ginger, and pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, pleasantly acidic, viscous, and bright. The flavor profile is ginger and lime blend with notes of chalky minerality, apricot and pineapple. The finish is sweet, and its flavors fade away nicely. The Panel would drink this gem on its own. With food we pair this Riesling with a crêpes suzette or angel food cake. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Erdener Prälat is considered by many wine lovers to be the greatest vineyard in the Mosel region. Auslese [pronounced OWS-lay-zuh] means "selected from the harvest," and is a luscious sweet wine made from very ripe clusters that are affected by botrytis. The gold capsule is reserved for an Auslese of special distinction. This special selection is made from clusters that are fully botrytis affected, but not quite shriveled to Beerenauslese concentration.
