The 2005 Oberhäuser Brücke is a magical young Auslese in the making. The very primary nose delivers the uncanny purity of the best botrytized wines of the vintage, coupled with the brilliant terroir that is the Brücke, as it soars from the glass in a mélange of pear, candied grapefruit, kaleidoscopic minerality and a floral topnote. I am sure this wine is sporting plenty of botrytis, but today it is almost imperceptible on both the nose and palate. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and utterly ethereal, with a brilliant core of fruit, perfect focus and balance, and great reserves as the turbocharger kicks in on the monumental finish. This is very early days for this brilliant young wine. (Drink between 2012-2040)
Shows fine intensity on a light-weight frame. Manages to maintain delicacy while expressing apricot, papaya, red berry and floral notes. Balanced and well-structured, this focuses a beam of fruit on the finish. Best from 2009 through 2030. (BS)
Rich golden- yellow color.The nose offers l uscious yellow plum, honeysuckle and sweet spice, layered with a delicate hint of botrytis.Smoky pineapple jam and an elevated minerality animate the palate. Dense, juicy and long on the finish. (JP)
