The vines are nurtured on sandy soils. Aromas of grapefruit and pineapple, with papaya, mango and lychee on the palate. Expressive mineral characters on the finish.
Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2011 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese No 8 Zwischen den Seen displays minty flavors along with grapefruit aromas. Sweet, piquant and viscous on the palate this is a very round and well structured TBA from a very hot year, but it is well balanced and fresh, with lemon flavors in the finish. Very good length.
Wine Spectator 95 points - Rich and unctuous, with plenty of fresh acidity behind the pure and focused flavors of Gala apple, melon, lemon curd and pear tart. A suave style, offering some savory notes on the long, creamy finish. Drink now through 2050. 150 cases made.-KM
