An estate-bottled offering of the classic German dessert wine. Produced in Rheinhessen exclusively from the Huxelrebe grape variety and consistent winner of the goldene Kammerpreismunze - gold medal issued by the Ministry of Agriculture. Exhibits deliciously sweet, ripe honeyed pear notes with hints of apricot and litchi. Nicely balanced. Serve with a fresh fruit and custard torte or Creme brI»lee. Gold medal winner! Offered in half-bottle format (375ml) with cork-finish and wax seal.

Our Beerenauslese is sourced from Albiger Hundskopf vineyard in the region of Rheinhessen not far from Nierstein. The Hundkopf [dog's head] single-vineyard derived its name from the somewhat creatively interpreted view that the vineyard is shaped like the head of a dog. The area under vine covers about 350 acres of sloping hillside with an average elevation of 650 feet above sea level.

A small plot, planted to Huxelrebe especially for the production of Beerenauslese and other sweet, dessert style wines, is cultivated by Tobias Jung, whose family has been vintners in the region for seven generations.

The Huxelrebe grape variety is the result of cross between Gutedel and Courtillier Musque [Muscat] in 1927 and was developed because it can reach high levels of ripeness, when yields are limited, whilst retaining a nice balance of acidity to give these wines the ability to age for years. It was later named after Fritz Huxel, a vintner from Rheinhessen who, after seeing the potential the variety had in the 1950s, went on to produce many national and international award-winning wines from this unique varietal.
