Bright straw color, clear nose of green apples, honey, kaffir lime and wildflowers. Medium body with a hint of viscosity. Absolutely stunning balance of sweetness and acidity, exactly what you want from an Auslese. Not sure where else this wine can go, it was remarkable tonight.
Moldy cork removed and I expected a whiff of petrol, but it wasn't there. Not a terribly expressive nose, and the palate was shy at first. After a little time in the glass some sweet pineapple came through with a nice creaminess. It was the second Riesling opened to go with a spicy seafood gumbo, so it was a tough pairing.
