The story! This wine is made by a co-op based in Pfalz, just across the border from Alsace. Spätlese is effectively the German term for late harvest wine: they allow the grapes to ripen longer on the vine, giving more time for acids to be transferred into sugars.
In your mouth: Although I am sweet, I have the freshness and crisp minerality to balance it out. Rich notes of peach, red apple and honey burst forth on my palate followed up by a slate dominated kick and a long, lingering finish.
