    The pale-colored 2013 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule displays a stunning pure and precise, stony-flavored bouquet with fresh white and green fruit aromas. Very clear, elegant and strikingly piquant on the palate, this is a noble sweet wine with a highly precise fruit expression and a very mineral and still stringent finish. Bottled with 7.5% of alcohol this is an extremely fine, tightly woven and lovely salty Auslese that seriously rivals the auctioned Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese this year.

    Golden yellow. Rich aromas of dried apricot, dates and nut oils, with a faint hint of brown spice botrytis. The honey-glazed papaya fruit and rich, creamy texture are animated by bright slate. Dense, pure and distinguished, this Riesling ends with a seductive finish.

    Aromas of sliced lemon, flint and melon. A full body. Round and softly textured yet fresh and clean. Medium sweet. Tight now but lovely.
