The purest fruit in the Garden of Eden must have smelt like this! Very aromatic and rich but scintillatingly transparent, this Gold Cap Auslese sings out mirabelle plums, fresh orchids, apricots, puffballs and persimmon. The palate is a complex, complete tapestry of flavor and texture; the combination of sweetness and acidity is simply sublime. It’s all so seamless that you almost don’t notice the innate minerality which suddenly bursts into life on the finish. So very long and delicious. Drink now or hold for decades.
