Savory, rather austere aromas of fresh herbs, lemon and honeycomb belie the intensity of sweet, rich tangerine and peach preserves on this decadent, yet light-as-a-feather Beerenauslese. Tart, citrus acidity extends the orange marmalade finish. Enjoy now for it's ethereal juiciness, or hold back a decade or two to deepen its waxy, honeyed tones.
