Our Notes: Also called Graševina in Croatia, Olaszrizling in Hungary, and Laški Rizling in Slovenia, Welschriesling takes on a special character near the town of Illmitz in Austria. Before Port and Sauternes, sweet noble rot infected wines were being produced in this region since the early 1500’s. Trockenbeerenauslese, literally “Dried Berry Selection” is the final harvest with the most noble rot. As opposed to Tokaji where these individual grapes are mashed into a paste before being added to a fermenting fresh base wine, this is everything fermenting all together. Aromatic, not has weighty as Chardonnay TBA, but incredibly persistent flavors of apricot, honey and winter spice. Pair with grilled fruit and pungent cheese drizzled with honey.

92 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine: Ripe yellow plum and plump, red-cheeked apricot lead a merry dance. Light, clear honey fills any gaps while notions of passion fruit and lemony acid temper the richness. A very, very fresh-fruited TBA with immense liveliness.
