2008 Burgerspital Rieslaner Randersacker pfulben Auslese 9%

A cross between Riesling and Sylvaner, it’s a late-ripening  high acid variety, producing very good results with botrytis.

Another Franken area bocksbeutle, this time under cork.

Clear, bright light gold in colour, it has pungent tropical aromas – mainly mango, with some green fruit overlay – melon-rind. The palate leans more to pineapple and golden delicious apples, with abundant refreshing acidity. The texture is appropriately oily and syrupy.  An excellent dessert wine.
