Wine Advocate
With the 2005 Saarburger Rausch Riesling Auslese A.P. #10 we cross into Beerenauslese territory, and this wine registers considerably more viscosity, creaminess, and sense of extract than its predecessors, yet at the same time evinces a razor’s edge of citricity that cuts through its rich layers of purple plum preserve, fresh as well as caramelized apple, and wet stones. Virtually all of this lot – which is clearly a candidate for three decade’s of cellaring – was sold to Switzerland.
