($40) This represents the botrytized material picked into separate baskets while the healthy fruit was being selected for the dry Schlossberg Spatlese, and really it is like a little Beerenauslese. Leaving aside whether such a thing is what one wants or expects in a wine labeled Spatlese, the results are impressively rich and ethereally aromatic. Musk, lily and honey aromas lead to a rich, creamy palate redolent of flowers and pit fruit preserves, clearly using the slate terroir as a sounding board in the manner of a great Middle Mosel riesling. Intense inner-mouth esters and a high-pitched, honeyed sweetness of sheer botrytisin emphasize the wine's Beerenauslese character, but the balance allows one to appreciate amazing nuances of flower, fruit and slate in the finish without too dominant a sweetness. 2 stars.
