Brilliant depth and minerality with a gorgeous richness and exotic fruit flavors. Very long finish. An amazing value!

"Picked in many sites throughout the second half of October and first days of November, and combining wizened botrytis berries with simply over-ripe ones, Prinz's 2007 Hallgartener Jungfer Riesling Auslese nicely reflects this approach in its sense of layering dried, preserved, and fresh pit fruits, as well as in its combination of creamy richness with bright refreshment. Soothing, polished, and loaded with quince paste, fig, and honey, it introduces brown spices, caramel, pungent smokiness, and a hint of white raisin into an already multi-layered finish. 'In a way, you're trying to trick nature with a wine like this,' says Prinz, referring to the broad window of place and time in which it was collected. But one could just as well argue that the result is a clearer picture of what nature offered in this vintage than would result from fruit selected solely under the aspect of botrytis (or some other). This should be worth following for at least 20 years, but its great advantage is to have such a light, refreshing, juicy personality that it will encourage consumption and bring enormous pleasure early." 92/100 David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
