"Complex, showing beautiful harmony between the rich flavors and muscular but well-fused acidity. Ripe pear and baking spice notes at the core are mixed with almond pastry and ground spice details, while floral and fleur de sel elements linger on the persistent finish. Drink now through 2028. 30 cases imported."

"A strikingly heady fruit concentrate of mint-laced quince, mango and banana informs a lush, creamy, glycerol-rich palate, yet there is a welcome influx of primary peachy juiciness to the almost explosively fruity finish, and 80-some grams of residual sugar manage not to come off as excessive, while allowing the alcohol to remain at a delightfully lightweight 10 percent. (There are 1,800 liters of this Auslese, but no corresponding 2015 Spätlese.)"
