Auslese

The best selected bunches, the essence of the vineyard, is distilled in an Auslese. Sweet, yes, but never cloying: Riesling’s vibrant acidity keeps the wine fresh and long. Long hang time for the grapes – 130 days plus is the norm – gives full rein to the minerality. Some of them – usually Goldcaps – will have the added complexity of botrytis, which in Riesling finds an inimitable partner. They can be drunk young, on the fruit, but age extremely well: they keep longer than any other white wine. Young Auslesen are lovely as an aperitif, with cheese, or as an enlivening refresher between courses; an old Auslese is a great complement to roasts, its off-dry quality perfectly matching the sweetness of the meat. Try it next to your chosen red and see which wins!
