Appearance: Gold.
Aroma: Bouquet of peach, apple, citrus, and acacia.
Palate: Adequate richness on the structure. Sweet and fine tropical fruits and undertone apple and lemon. Overshadowed fresh acidity. Elegant minerality. Spicy notes too. Long and lingering.

Stunning I was. So much joy from this bottle of sweet wine. There are purity but yet at the same time punchiness. I had this bottle along with Thai food and I found accomplishment. The balance between spiciness of Thai food and sweetness of this auslese was the key. Nevertheless, it can even be sipped as aperitif. I guess fruity dessert should also be a good companion. At this price, I wouldn't mind stocking up more at all. It is beautiful now and shall maintain its charm for many more years. Great job.
