($145; for 375 ml.) This came from isolated botrytized bunches left from the picking of the regular Lenchen Spatlese. Creamy and rounded on the palate, with subtle peach, apricot, floral, honey and nut elements. This is really quite discreetly touched by botrytis, so that the flavors represent, if anything, an intensification of those exhibited by the Lenchen Kabinett. There is the merest hint of caramelized peach and apricot and of smoky volatile notes. The astonishingly long finish is amazingly delicate, nuanced and refined, with mineral salts, flowers and nut oils clearly displayed. 2 stars.
