94pointsWenzel 2002 Saz Ruster Ausbruch White (Burgenland)

Wenzel's top cuvée is frighteningly expensive, but there's no denying the quality. Intensely botrytized aromas of dried apricots billow from the glass, accented by hints of toast, vanilla and coconut from aging in new oak barrels. Round and mouthfilling, it is very sweet, but with just enough acid to provide a semblance of balance. Dried apricot flavors dominate, but there's also superripe apple and melon flavors, while hints of spice and citrus emerge on the long finish. A worthy successor to the 2001. Joe Czerwinski
