A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE, ONE OF A KIND!!

"Rich and unctuous, with plenty of fresh acidity behind the pure and focused flavors of Gala apple, melon, lemon curd and pear tart. A suave style, offering some savory notes on the long, creamy finish. Drink now through 2050. 150 cases made. –KM" (WS)

"The 2011 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese No 8 Zwischen den Seen displays minty flavors along with grapefruit aromas. Sweet, piquant and viscous on the palate this is a very round and well structured TBA from a very hot year, but it is well balanced and fresh, with lemon flavors in the finish. Very good length." (WA)

"Rich golden yellow. The elegant aromas are clearly Scheurebe, with candied passion fruit, quince and lemon oil highlighted by the spicy botrytis. Dense, velvety and honeyed but lively too, with delicate minerality and a hint of clove providing lift. Finishes a touch herbal on peach preserves, nuts oils and cinnamon." (VM)
