Niederthaler Hof Albiger Petersberg Auslese 1975 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 don't appear on the critics' radar.

    About

    Auslese litterally 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 food. Our favourite matches are with creme brulee, bread and butter pudding and fruit filled crepes. The Albiger Petersberg is from Schlossbockelheim in the Nahe region, an area famous for its superb wines. It is a blend of Huxelrebe, Rulander (the old German name for Pinot Gris which was first brought to Germany from France by Dr Rulande) and Neuzuchten.

    Our Views

    Because of the higher sugar content, dessert wines age well and are a safe choice. Having tried this delicious Auslese we have no hesitation recommending it. As a gift for a wine lover, it is unsurpassed.
