Musky hints of apricots mingle with honeyed botrytis notes. The palate reveals a luscious, mellifluous sweetness that is carried by a fine seam of pure, citric acidity. This Beerenauslese treads lighter than a TBA, making it suitable for the less rich, less sweet occasions. This is to be celebrated for its core of citric purity which makes all the apricot richness sing, echoing long after the last drop.

German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
