**IWC - David Schildknecht

...plenty of fresh fruit juiciness left in this enormously ripe wine, and a bracing, fascinating salty-mineral strand in the honeyed finish.

97The Wine Advocate

...a boisterous nose of honeyed minerals, botrytis, and spice. Surprisingly, given this wine's immense depth and thick personality, it retains great purity as well as exceptional balance.

95Wine Spectator

Thick and rich, exhibiting herbal, caramel and pastry aromas and flavors on a lithe, racy structure. Impressive for its concentration and finesse, with a lingering aftertaste of apricot preserves.


Germany, Rheingau

Rheingau is considered one of the finest of Germany’s great wine districts. Its 8,000 vineyard acres are planted primarily to Riesling, and the Rieslings of Rheingau are noted for their steely character. In recent decades producers have also started planted Pinot Noir, called Spatburgunder in Germany. Historically the most famous Rieslings of the Rheingau have been the very sweet Beerenauslesen and Trockenbeerenauslesen styles, but as the market for dry wines has increased, younger Rheingau winemakers have begun producing dry Riesling, harkening back to methods used before the 20th century. By 2005 nearly 85% of the Rheingau Rieslings have been dry wines.


White Wine, Riesling, Auslese

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
