Story

"The vines for the Auslese also grow in the best parcels of the Niederberg-Helden site in Lieser. During harvest the grapes are manually selected for only dark-golden almost violet botrytis grapes that have almost shrunk to dehydrated raisins. They are still a bit juicy and taste like fully ripe aromatic fruits. A number of the vines from the Grand Cru site Lieser Niederberg-Helden consist of old ungrafted Riesling vines of more than a 100 years of age that have withstood even the phylloxera. Already centuries ago Riesling wines from this site were among the best in the world."

Accolades

“This lively, powerful white features an essence of slate and sea salt fringed by touches of anise. Notes of wild berry and red currant show in mix, finishing a touch off-dry, with accents of chamomile and candied ginger. Drink now through 2025. Score: 92“ WineSpectator.com
