From a 375ml, this is a desert wine. Beerenauslese means the grapes are late harvest grapes affected by noble rot and picked individually off the vines. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is pretty with honey and apricots along with a slight wet stone note. Full bodied. Good acidity. On the palate, this is sweet, not cloying. Some depth. A nice way to finish an evening. Still very young, this wine should go another twenty years. Nice on its own, this would be nice with soft cheeses.
