Hugely impressive with wonderfully balanced sweetness and certainly not shy on aromas. Honey, hints of white truffle,...

Mineral and distinct orange on the nose. Plus honeyed apricot and lime flavours. Great balance and ripeness.

How could you not love Rieslings when there are gems like this out there and this wine will only get better with age

Description: Although this is medium-dry wine (Spätlese) there a nice balance between sweet and dry. The wine shows bright yellow gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features Ylang Ylang, petrol, peach, apple pie, honey, orange, ginger, pink grapefruit and limestone. Full body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: C.H Berres consistently makes great Rieslings

Drink now or in the next 20 years on its own or and pair it with jerk chicken.

Tasted: 24 July 2014

Very aromatic with grapefruit, melon, mineral, marzipan and ginger notes. Low-to-medium bodied with lively acids, it's medium in sweetness with elegant apricot/peach, ginger and mineral flavours. Lengthy finish. Very nice! Tasted May/2014.
