Ried Spiegel (Langenlois) Grüner Veltliner Beerenauslese
Pale yellow straw hue with green and gold reflections. Clean & youthful with still-restrained exotic fruit and spice notes. Complex on the palate. The high residual sweetness is perfectly balanced by crisp but elegant acidity; flowery (reminiscent of a meadow with a whiff of elderflower); also apple, pear, lime and some preserved stone fruit tones; a touch of vanilla and herbal spice. Very elegant with a long and minerally finish.

Food pairing recommendation
In its youth, it matches finely with fruity desserts or/and (fortune) cookies or can be enjoyed just after a meal as a refreshing finale. You can even keep the open bottle of this young dessert wine in the refrigerator for more than a week and it will even gain in complexity. Laying down a closed bottle in a good cellar can see this wine maturing even for decades. It certainly makes a fine gift for a knowledgeable wine loving friend.
