Riesling Altenberg Auslese, Van Volxem (37.5) - 2018

This rare Auslese pours into the glass with an extremely clear, pure, fascinating golden hue. The bouquet seems rather fresh and reserved at first, but then reveals a wonderful aroma of candied citrus, exquisite herbs and delicate yellow and white flowers. On the palate it tastes wonderfully crystalline, with pure tones and a dreamy balance of sweetness and ripe, fruity acidity. Wine Advocate: 95/100

Viticulture

The Van Volxem estate is located in Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, more precisely on the banks of the Saar in the village of Wiltingen. It was bought by the current owner, Roman Niewodniczanski, in 2000. Almost all the vines are located on schist and the harvest never starts before All Saints' Day. The vines are all between 30 and 60 years old. The Altenberg is a very steep schist slope. This parcel was acquired by the estate in 2003. First vintage produced: 2004.

Oenology

This rare wine, made from an over-ripe harvest, is only produced in the best years, when the botrytis is present but pure, and makes for a paradoxically sweet but crystalline wine.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Drink it for itself or with pineapple carpaccio.
