The 2019 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (Gold Capsule) offers a concentrated and spicy bouquet with notes of tea and lemon chutney. Round and refined on the palate, this is a highly elegant and salty-piquant Auslese with delicate grip and very fine concentration. It tastes concentrated but not that sweet and enormously piquant and salty. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.
Sweet aromas of stone fruits fill the nose. Elegant & well-balanced on the palate with refreshing acidity and delicate minerality. This Riesling goes well with Asian cuisine or many richer courses.
