With repeated swirling an initially shy fragrance opens up to reveal a whole range of fruit aromas, from ripe peach and yellow plum to the downright tropical mango and orange. On the palate the Gräfenberg Spätlese has all the fruit, from fleshy apricot to sweet juicy orange, but it is its tantalising vibrancy that takes it to another dimension. Acidity takes its role to perfection when it is there, but not noticed, in total harmony with a well-pitched measure of residual sugar. -Michael Schmidt,
