Oestricher Lenchen is a revered dessert wine site which is classified as VDP-Grosse Lage (Grand Cru), and rightfully so. It is notorious for one of the highest must weight wines to be produced in German history, a 1920 Trockenbeerenauslese dessert wine. The surrounding stone walls soak up the daytime warmth of the sun and radiate it out at night. Additionally the surrounding rose gardens add a distinctive perfume note to the wines.
Deep pure gold color. Fine maturity paired with racy acidity which gives an incredible freshness to the wine. Aromas of dried peaches, mandarins, caramel and white nougat with a delicate spicy note. The perfect integrated acidity make its framework look almost youthful. Very complex with a long finish.
Cuisine: Goes seamlessly with seared foie gras, and also baked fruit desserts such as baked apples, apricot cake, peach turnovers.
