Mosel Riesling Auslese Winninger Uhlen, Weingut Knebel 2007 375ml

What can you say to an Auslese that is virtually a BA in richness? The Uhlen vineyard is on steep, terraced slopes with more red slate and a warmer exposure. Crops ripen extremely well here, especially in vintages like 2007. The nose is strongly earthy and mineral with a distinctive honeyed botrytis scent. Viscously textured, it has dense flavors of peach preserves laced with the spice from botrytis that coat the palate for a long time. Very concentrated and tightly knit, this will evolve for decades akin to a BA or a rich Sauternes. Mindboggling in its opulence! This bad boy has very, very small production and is usually destined for auction.

"A style that's marked by plenty of botrytis. Intensely sweet, with apricot, beeswax, candied citrus and spice aromas and flavors, yet racy and defined by its bracing structure. There's great length and harmony, but this needs time to show all its nuances. Drink now through 2040. 50 cases made." 97/100 Wine Spectator
