Autumn has arrived and finally time for some good meat and root vegetable stews. In addition, the time of year when Wineblogg long for desserts. A good cheese platter or personal favorite apple pie. And as icing on the cake it most suitable to serve a good dessert wine.
Golden Spiral Ice is no Icewein as the name might suggest. But it does not matter because this Auslese produced by Weinkellerei Hechtsheim is a shining example of what German dessert wines can deliver and in addition to the incredibly attractive price of only 8 euros for a half bottle.
The wine is made from the grape combination Sylvaner, Riesling, Scheurebe, Kerner and Grauburgunder. The color is as beautiful as ambers picked on the beach in Danish Skagen. The nose is filled with suggestive hints of honey and dried apricots. The taste is impressive with aromas of creme brulee, honey, dried apricot and gives a great impression with good balance between acidity and sweetness.
Made for apple pie with the acidity from the fruit and the sweet drops in perfect harmony. I give the wine 6/10 Wineblogg corks.
