Food Pairings for Piesporter Goldtropfchen Auslese Reinhold Haart
"Stunning nose of flowers, dried citrus, herbs and minerals introduce this intense yet elegant auslese. It’s pure and expressive, with pinpoint balance and a salty, minerally finish. It doesn’t taste sweeter than the spätlese, but it’s more intense. Drink now through 2030...94." WS 1/06 "The 2004 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Auslese furthers the themes of elegance and refinement. After a faintly yeasty note, the nose opens to an orchard’s worth of apple and quince, augmented by black currant, pineapple, pink grapefruit, and sweet floral perfume. The palate is creamy, almost custardy, yet lively and uplifting, loud and clear in its treble range of ripe citrus, yet possessed of lovely low tones of toasted nuts and wet stone. The finish is persistently juicy and vivid in its flavors of pineapple, quince, faintly tart berry skin, and wet stone. This ravishingly refined and bell-clear expression of Goldtropfchen Riesling should evolve fascinatingly over more than three decades...94" WA 2/06
