Tasting

Beautiful gold with brilliant, yellow reflections. Multi-dimensional fruit on the nose with fresh pineapple, with a shipload of muscat grapes, acacia blossom, tropical fruits, patisserie from Rust, some brioche with chestnut honey on it, vineyard peach and eucalyptus. Inviting, almost respectable notes of honey, seductive fragrance. Also for newcomers in the noble sweet range, if they try hard. Multidimensional, sweet with a crisp, almost racy acidity and elegant creamy fruit. High end citrus sirup, well integrated residual sugar which supports the acidity, juicy – a delicate, highly elegant, multi-faceted “Beerenauslese” which positively mirrors the vintage. Those who don´t give in now …. have to turn directly to a Ruster Ausbruch!  

Pairing

Even turns a dry biscuit into a torch-dessert. Goat cheese parfait with roasted pineapple, pizza with Stilton, porridge with candied citrus fruits, Kornel cherries and Macadamia nuts, mango tart with Fontina and honey. Roasted goose liver with Muscat raisins, curd cheese pancake with stewed plumbs, peach ice-cream with pieces of fruit, desserts of regional fruits such a strawberries or greengage, rice soufflé with raspberry syrup. Puff paste-goat cheese-patties with molten apricots. Grilled marshmallows with passion fruit juice, rosemary crème brûlée. To get into the right mood for a sweet wine tasting – or match a „Sautern“.
