Riesling Beerenauslese Knoll 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"With Knoll’s 2006 Riesling Pfaffenberg Beeerenauslese we are treated to a huge jump in concentration and brightness vis a vis the corresponding Auslese. Concentrated purple plum, white peach laced with honey, brown spices, and wood smoke inform an incredibly deep, rich, creamy-textured, yet infectiously juicy and positively ethereal palate-coating essence of Riesling and truly noble rot. For poise, purity, transparency and length, nobly sweet Austrian Riesling doesn’t get much better than this. I would not hesitate to cellar some for 12-15 years and expect a more mineral and site-typical definition to emerge...95-96" WA 07/08
