Winemaker Notes

#67 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Spatlese [SHPAYT-lay-zuh] is German for "late picked." It has more richness and body than Kabinett because the grapes are allowed to ripen for an extra week or more. This Prädikat (ripeness level) often gives you the purest expression of the vineyard's terroir, because the fruit is fully ripe, but without any influence of over-ripeness or botrytis.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Intense aromas and flavors of peach strudel and apple pie feature notes of custard and gooseberry. The vibrant finish echoes with long and pure glazed citrus notes. A powerful style. Drink now through 2030.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Elegant aromas of cherry, acacia blossom and pine nut. Succulent and creamy on the palate, tinged with nuances of herbs, nuts and vanilla. With fine balance, this spatlese finishes with an underlying sense of slate.
