Haus Am Markt Riesling Auslese Bernkasteler Kurfurstlay 2010

Riesling is Germanys most popular grape and in Mosel that commitment truly shows. Terraced vineyards along the Mosel River are among the most labor intensive and dangerous in the world. The use of modern technology is limited by the geography. The result is the product of patience and tradition to deliver only the finest German Riesling. These are all Pradikatswein, the highest level of quality in Germany. Auslese wine is one sweetness category above Spatlese wine. The grapes are typically not picked until November which allows for the possibility of some noble rot to sweeten the wine even further. Haus am Markt Auslese is rich with an intense sweet flavor. The palate features notes of apples and pears leading to a subtle finish. [+]
