Straw yellow, complex fragrance of ripe, juicy fruits, rose garden, a whole bunch of spices, brilliant and animating. Freshly picked yellow pears, greengage. young and rich, probably the most elegant ever. Pleasant fruit-driven sweetness in the upper Spätlese-range. Good Traminer spiciness mirroring the vintage. Aroma concentration on the palate. Sweet nectarines, fresh kiwi. Finely chiselled. Very enjoyable, not to be underestimated. A creamy fruit-drug, yet “easy-going” and modern. In this case “late harvest” rather is an “understatement”. Always young yet a classic with potential and tradition for many years now.
Papardelle with Thai-chilli & coriander honey syrup, soup of sweet chestnuts, kaki-crème brûlée, sorbets with spicy fruit combinations such as Williams pears with cloves or delicate red mould cheese paired with chutneys, small goose liver balls and stewed pears, red mould cheese affinated almost to an “illegal” extent such as Epoisses, Le Cacouyard etc., to “support ladies ‘meetings” or in case gentlemen are running low of red wine for the moment or just before they finally “force” themselves to a double magnum of Blaufränkisch Reserve 2009.
