This rich and elegant wine is made from over ripe grapes, many of which are affected with botrytis. This imparts an edge of spice and honey to the wine's core of mineral peach and quince. Enjoy now or over the next 10 years.
About this wine producer: Weingut Ratzenberger is in the beautiful town of Bacharach-Steeg on the left bank of the Rhine, about a half-hour from the Frankfurt airport. It’s our favorite first stop in Germany. The guest apartment is one of the most comfortable places we stay, with the view through the bedroom window dominated by a wall of Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder) vines marching up the towering Steeger St. Jost.
