Incredibly sweet, exotic, delicate yellow fruit coupled with hints of nougat.
This very sweet dessert wine is made from individually selected shrivelled grapes that have the highest sugar levels with flavours concentrated further by the fungus Botrytis or noble rot. Trockenbeerenauslese ranks amongst the greatest sweet wines in the world. The best way of describing this wine from the words of Oliver Zeter himself – “What guy doesn’t dream of one day finding a real treasure? Excavate a forgotten pirate treasure on a desert island or discover captured goods in the bushes – this was a daydream. My dreams have finally come true! This is how it happened, I was able to harvest 100 litres of Trockenbeerenauslese from my first Sauvignon Blanc in 2007. I let it ferment in large carboys for almost two years. In the meantime, other projects took center stage and the carboys soon fell into oblivion. Only when our cellar was moved to Diedesfeld in 2011 did they reappear. Somewhat skeptical yet full of curiosity, I tried the wine that had faded into obscurity for so long … and I was thrilled! Around the same time, I had the good fortune of having access to similar “wine treasures” from Ortega and Huxelrebe from 1993, 1994, 1998 and 1999 of some winemaker friends. I was able to contribute a precious Rieslaner sweet wine from 2011 from our own production. On this basis, I created a cuvée from Trockenbeerenauslese: the GOLDSCHATZ. Packaged in an elegant 0.375 litre bottle, it is a special jewel from my collection, my own personal ‘POT OF GOLD'(which is the meaning of Goldschatz). Its incredibly sweet, exotic, delicate yellow fruit coupled with hints of nougat, chocolate and coffee make it the perfect accompaniment for warm chocolate brownies with vanilla ice cream! Yummy!”
