Product Description

"In a normal year, notes Adam of his 190 Oechsle 2011 Dhronhofberger Riesling Beerenauslese, "this would be a T.B.A." But seeing as the most rigorous sorting of botrytis material resulted in another lot nearly a hundred degrees higher in Oechsle than this (and still fermenting last fall) this bottling was declassified. A bread-like whiff of yeastiness along with penetratingly sharp radish and lemon rind notes reminiscent of Eiswein (as well as, unsurprisingly, of the corresponding starred Auslese that resulted from the same picking and sorting) usher-in a viscous, oily, downright buttery palate suffused with white raisin, preserved fig, and dried date. A faint rivulet of fresh orange and lemon as well as a lick of salt add a bit of liveliness and refreshment to the finish, but the confitured and buttery aspects of this elixir are in the ascendance and for now at least very slightly at odds with the wine's volatile and prickly elements, though the resulting tension is above all mouthwatering and stimulating. You could wait a long time for this to shape itself into something harmonious, but that might not be the point. I don't doubt it will "live" for at least 30 years, but it displays undeniable, attention-getting appeal already."
