This wine brought together the overripe and partly botrytized berries that Knoll preferred to leave out of the other Smaragd pickings lest they not ferment to dryness. In the event, there is relatively little sugar left behind even here, and the 14.5% alcohol is well integrated into a rather broad, rich whole. Yellow plum, baked apple and a hint of smoke in the nose. Creamy and full in the mouth, with brown spices and lightly caramelized apple mingling attractively.
