92 Points

Tuesday, November 17, 2009 - AP #14-07. Opened several hours ahead of time to let the sulfur clear, and this is a really remarkable wine as this shows none of the heavy richness or botrytis I've seen in almost every higher-pradikat bottling in 06; instead the bright pineapple/other tropical fruit flavours come across as incredibly light and precise with faint touches of honey and flowers adding complexity, and an intense slatey mineral character underneath. There's a bright acid spine here that balances the sweetness very well and keeps it very elegant and light, to the point that it's shockingly food friendly for an '06 Auslese.
