Leitz Riesling Eiswein Geisenheimer Rothenberg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Terry Theise: (SOS4: bona-fide dessert wine) Picked the day after Christmas. This is among the greatest Eisweins I’ve ever tasted. A parfait of wild strawberries and peonies. Evokes memories that aren’t even yours. Something singular and sublime here, as ethereal as meringue, as solid as a loving dream... What I’m feeling tasting this little miracle are the presences of the sublime, and of divinity... Great botrytis wines are more wolfish, more salivary; there is savor in them. Great Eiswein are like an ether of existence in which a hidden sublimity is revealed. Great Eiswein is also in some way absolutely still. It’s like the curve in the road you can’t see beyond, or like the instant between inhale and exhale, calm and yet suspenseful.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
