Tasting

Straw yellow with brilliant platinic reflections, distinctive viscosity, hay flowers, juicy pears, quite a number of ripe yellow fruits – everything the sun of this vintage yielded, a touch of greengage and honey melon, almost like a juicy mandarine, very inviting and animating. Delicate residual sweetness with vibrant fruit performance, perfectly dosed, animating acidity – results in exemplary harmony, soaked in pears, yellow, ripe tropical fruits and yellow field flowers, yet seducing to take a big sip. A classical yet up-to-date late harvest which carries on a long tradition.

Making

Hand-picked end of September 2017 selectively from the single vineyard Kulm into small boxes.
