Some of the same attractive texture, generous fruit, and overall harmony displayed by the non-vineyard-designated Spätlese is also present here, but the added flavor dimensions go far beyond those exhibited by that wine, or in fact by any wine on Weil's table today. The citricity here is subtle, helping to lift and carry poached white peach, honey and flowers into a long, fine, billowing, nearly endless finish. The expression of minerals here is almost like chalk dust, folded into a leesy, creamy, polished palate. Nine hundred fifty cases of this show-stopper were produced, close to a third of which were earmarked for the U.S. (DS) *2 stars*
