The historic Weingut Wegeler regularly produces some outstanding wines which shine through their aromatic precision. This showstopper of an Auslese is a major success, even by the Estate's high standards.

Bernkasteler Doctor Riesling Auslese GK (Auction)
This offers a superb nose of saffron, pineapple, laurel, passion fruit and star anise. This glorious wine literally explodes on the palate, with an incredibly focused feel of fruit cream and raisin liqueur. The finish is long and fruity, with just a hint of honey to remind one that this is a BA styled wine. The aromatics are great but what is really remarkable about this wine is this silky feel on the palate. This is a showy wine, but one that delivers the goods. This is a stunning effort. Now-2042
