Carl Gunderloch Beerenauslese "Messidor" 2005 wine review by (PB)
Golden honey color with big grapefruit aroma up front with sweet,baked mandarin orange underneath, rose petal notes and overall awesome bouquet!
Palate--Not as thick as a Sauternes but lovely, silky texture with racy acid and a lingering finish. This wine should hold for several (many) more years. Awesome!
This is one of those wine bargains you want to shoot yourself for not getting more of when you had the chance. This half bottle cost $17 on sale from $35. If you know German pradikats, a Beerenauslense at this price is amazing. A treat if you can find it so raise a glass!
