Extremely unevolved, reticent nose hints at candied citrus peel, juniper and aromatic spices and herbs, plus a whiff of white truffle... This has the structure of a red wine: it's hard to scrape this stuff off one's palate. Opens out like a peacock's tail on the back, showing building sweetness, great lift and tannic spine. This complete wine lingered on my palate for minutes and in my mind for days.
...an intense, clear and mineral-flavored bouquet of dried and stewed apricots... Round, intense and very elegant and finessed on the palate, this sweet to medium-sweet Schoenenbourg reveals a lingering salinity and firm tannin grip.
Bold, ripe and off-dry, this combines peach, quince and vanilla pastry notes with beeswax and chamomile accents. Open and appealing, it has ample structure embedded in its rich texture.
