Altenberg
Auslese VDP.GL

Riesling Auslese – Great location with a sweet taste profile.

The Auslese from the peak location “Altenberg” pours into the glass with an extremely crystal clear, pure, fascinating golden straw color. The bouquet of this Auslese appears somewhat cool and reserved at first, yet it soon reveals, after a short time, a wonderful aroma of candied citrus fruits, exquisite herbs and delicate yellow and white blossoms.

On the palate, the Van Volxem Altenberg Riesling Auslese is wonderfully mineral with pure-tones, a point of refinement, a dreamy balance of sweetness and fruity acidity.

Reviews

95/100

..the 2016 Altenberg Riesling Auslese offers a clear, very fine raisin and slate aroma on the nose. Round, lush and opulent on the palate, this is a concentrated Auslese with generous, mouth-filling sweetness and salty-piquant minerality. The finish is tensioned, long, superlush and fine.
