Bright, pale yellow. Ripe aromas of soft yellow fruits, underripe pineapple, brown spices and fresh herbs, plus a hint of earth. Broad, spicy and airy; in an off-dry style but quite light on its feet. Finishes with lovely subtle persistence and a lightly dusty quality. Went through its malolactic fermentation, but Barmes notes that the 2007s are rich in the more stable tartaric acidity, which should enable them to age slowly and well. These vines average 40 years of age.

Furthermore, many wine drinkers' early experiences with sweet wines from Germany (think Blue Nun), have not been especially rewarding. We say that it's your loss if you continue to fear the...
