  • Thirteen months since the last one, this seeming, at first, a little fresher (on the nose) than I'd expected. Still some spritzig, med>med dark gold, but still with good reflection. The petrol is deeply woven between folds of ripe melon, white pepper, freshly cut apples, bees wax, wet stones and spice. Full-bodied, with good acids and deep flavors of spice, apple, honey and citrus. Medium finish; flavors linger, gently. Closer to very good than good; fully mature, no reason to wait. I may pour off 200ml and check back on it in a few nights, just to see. 8,0% abv

    Aerated to decanter for 2 hours, returned to bottle and served 4 hours later with goose pâté

  • #14-07. Slightly advanced yellow colour. Classic Pruem nose, with a hint of salted caramel, honey, and white peach, though this time around, the famous sulphur nose is much more muted. Very, very sweet on the palate, with just a light hint of effervescence. A somewhat bizarre and disjointed bottle of Auslese. Everything is there: the minerality, the sweetness, the acidity, but it doesn't seem to hold together at all, as if you were tasting each component separately. Perhaps a hint of pineapple on the palate as well. Medium-length slightly astringent finish. Serve this bottle a little on the cold side; it does get a little flabby.

  • Really enjoyed the nose of thyme and petrol sitting on the pear fruit. Palate showed none of the petrol but with medium acidity bracing the tree fruit and medium sweetness it hit the spot for me.

  • PnP served non-blind over 2 nights, both showing equally well. As before, this comes across more as a Spatlese than an Auslese. Avg complexity and length, this is one for short and mid-term enjoyment. I dare say it's at least half way into its window, which reminds me I need to shorten the (my own) window from 2022 to 2018. Quite delicious, if not overly complex on the nose, it proves a solid companion to food, but is equally good on its own. 8,0% abv, thru 2018

  • Slow-O 1 hour, consumed over the next hour. Medium toward light straw color. White peach, wet stone, white floral, coriander, lychee. Medium-full bodied, with plenty of sweetness, but also a healthy amount of acidity. Nothing overly complex, and I'm a touch concerned with the ageing potential as I couldn't help but notice a fair amount of flab about the midsection at times. Drink thru 2022, 8% abv

  • 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.
