Clear gold color. Delicious Riesling aromas, apples, peaches, pine and "petrol." Bold and rich, flavors follow the nose. Crisp fresh-fruit acidity provides so much structure that the Auslese-level sweetness passes almost unnoticed. Clean and consistent in a very long finish. Importer: Milton S. Kronheim, Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Oct. 27, 1997)
German wine with food: Although the conventional wisdom holds that higher-level German wines like this one are too sweet to go well with food, we found no evidence that this is so. This Auslese made a delightful match with a Germanic dinner of pork loin roasted on a bed of sauerkraut with a dash of dark beer; a creamy puree of potatoes and cauliflower; and a dish of cucumbers and thin-sliced onions tossed in yogurt.
