About Schmitt Sohne 2015 Beerenauslese
Beerenasulese translates from German to "berry out-picked". It's a rare wine made from individually selected grapes that are very ripe. Schmitt Sohne sources these grapes from the heart of the Rhine River Valley in the Rheinhessen region. Usually, these grapes have Botrytis cinerea, or noble rot, further concentrating the high sugar content. Strong intensity, exotic with the aroma of tropical fruits in the nose and voluminous and rich on the palate.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 90 Points saying "It's rare to find a beerenauslese at prices like these and luckily, this bottling offers surprising bang for your buck. Dusty and earthen yet chock full of fragrant orange blossom and peach, it's a creamy swirl of honey, fruit and mineral, with a lingering finish."
