Pale golden yellow. Heady aromas of strawberry and nut oil, with a gentle hint of smoky botrytis. White peach fruit essences and mineral salts animate the creamily rich yet delicate palate. More concentrated than the other ausleses at this address, in more of a BA style. But with its strong acidity, this impressive wine will mature into a great auslese.
Hunkered down into itself, this feels compact and firm, the combination of super ripe green fruits dovetailing perfectly with earthy soil notes. A smoky note pervades the wine, complemented by a crisp herbal note that brings freshness to it. It feels like it could last a few decades, slowly giving more with each year.
Very creamy, rich and elegant, with luscious peach, apple compote and lemon cake flavors that feature hints of chamomile. Everything is in proportion, with notes of Key lime pie on the ethereal finish. Drink now through 2040.
This wine is unabashedly forward with sweet, juicy, stonefruit intensity, yet remarkably composed. Delicately structured, it’s anchored with piercing citrus acidity and a bristle of crushed-stone and slate minerality on the finish.
1983 G. Schmitt Schenk Longuicher Herrenberg Auslese Mosel (damp stained label, corroded capsule)
