Sweet dessert wines
We make sweet dessert wines in the qualities ”Beerenauslese“, ”Eiswein“ and ”Trockenbeerenauslese“ if and when the conditions are right.
As nature is unpredictable we only have certain vintages – the wines are therefore rare and precious.
The bases for these wines are carefully hand-selected botrytised grapes (also known as noble rot). Our last ”Eiswein“ was produced in 1996.
A classic sweet ”Auslese“, bordering on the verge of ”Beerenauslese“.
Fantastic accompaniment to savoury blue and red-yellow soft cheeses.
A highlight in every vintner’s life and a very special gift from nature is the harvest of a ”Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese“.
The grapes have been hand-selected grape by grape. Very low yield.
This wine can be cellared for decades.
We have so far only been able to make this wine three times in the past 30 years of which we can currently offer two.
