This is a 'Sticky' or dessert wine made from botrytised Chardonnay, Riesling and Semillon grapes. Botrytis, known in Germany as 'Noble Rot', is not always that noble, but when the weather conditions are right, it feeds off the moisture in the grapes and partially raisons them, making what is left of the juice very noble indeed. This wine is a result of such a year and can be enjoyed with desserts and cheeses.
