2014 Chardonnay Beerenauslese [375 ml] (Edelbauer, Christoph)
Christoph Edelbauer, Chardonnay Beerenauslese, Austria 2014 [375 ml]100% Chardonnay TROPICAL FRUIT, HONEY, CITRUS ZEST; HARMONIOUS SWEETNESS & ACIDITY Chardonnay for dessert? You bet your ass. Christoph Edelbauer's dessert wine is a masterpiece of harmony. Think warm honey dripping slowly over a plate of tropical fruit, dusted w/ grapefruit zest & served alongside a bowl of baked golden apples topped w/ ethereally light caramel. Rich, full sweetness yields to palate-cleansing acidity so deftly that you'll need to savor another mouthful just to see how the trick is performed. Serving Suggestion: A small plate of fruit & cheese in the quiet dark, late at night.
