What a bargain for such a lavishly composed beerenauslese. Aromas of honey, spice and potpourri meld seamlessly on the palate, with flavors of caramel and peach preserves. It's luxuriously rich and creamy, but brightened by streaks of lemony acidity and a tea-leaf astringency that lingers long on the finish.
