E.Fenyvesi Spätrot-Rotgipfler Beerenauslese 1959 75cl

SKU: 41957
A stunning and little know dessert wine, almost from a lost era. These Auslese wines cellar superbly well and are comparable to the greatest Sauternes. They merit the highest scores, though are so rare that they seldom appear on the critics' radar.

    Excellent level and good, clean label.


    Auslese literally means 'selected', though it is also now the term used for late harvested German dessert wine along with Beerenauslese (selected berries), Trockenbeerenauslese (selected dried berries) and Eiswein (ice-wine). These are all 'Spatlese' or late-harvest wines since the grapes are hand-picked from very ripe selected bunches, usually in late-November/early December. Discovered by winemaker Schloss Johannisberg in 1787, it is unlike Sauternes and other sweet wines since the grapes tend not to have the characteristics of botrytis or 'noble rot'. These wines drink extremely well on their own as aperitifs, though are also superb with desserts.

    This sweet white wine from the Austrian village of Gumpoldskirchen was made from a signature blend of Spatrot (aka Zierfandler) and Rotgipfler - 2 grapes varieties native and unique to the specific sub-region of Thermenregion just southwest of Vienna.

    Our Views

    Because of the higher sugar content, dessert wines age well and are a safe choice and as a gift for a wine lover, it is unsurpassed.
