Decanted for nearly two hours before tasting. Medium golden colour. On the nose; spicy baked apples, caramel, honey, citrus fruits and floral perfume. On the palate; viscous and concentrated with a whole lot of Mosel sweetness. Very enjoyable, but bordering off dry – serve with spicy food.
Almost golden: big extract; slightly muted nose, relieving som tropical fruits - even hinting at dried fruit; massive body, low acidity, yellow mature apples, noticable sweetness. Did not go well with shrimps and crab.
I don't know if this is just too young to drink right now, but i feel that this wine was a little bit too much for me. Very concentrated and rich, but unelegant and a little bit too much manipulated for my taste. Excellent, for sure, but not living up to the expectations given by some critics. I've always had a hard time understanding Van Volxem wines and this wine strengthens my view that they might not be meant for me. Keller and Dönnhoff are much more to my liking.
