Tasting

Light golden with brilliant reflections. Multi-dimensional fruit on the nose with ripe pineapple, acacia blossom, tropical fruits, patisserie from Rust, sugar melon, vineyard peach and eucalyptus. Inviting, almost fresh notes of honey, seductive fragrance. Also for newcomers in the noble sweet range. Multidimensional, sweet with a really crisp acidity and elegant creamy fruit. High end maple sirup, well integrated residual sugar which supports the acidity, juicy – a concentrated, 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 candied pineapple, pizza with Stilton, 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“.
