Kracher describes this as a table selection, meaning that the berries were further selected on a sorting table before winemaking began. This gives a wine which is almost the essence of wine, just the richness, the sweetness and the botrytis. The flavors run together, with touches of quince, of oranges and white fruits. Flowery, mineral, this is a superb wine.
