This is a late-harvest sweet wine, only made in the best years.

It’s from Laura’s Zellerberg vineyard in the Mosel, which is set on steep grey slate - which gives a lovely minerality to the wine.

2018 was one of those perfect years, when they got just the right balance of sun and rain to produce grapes with the perfect amount of sugar in them to produce an Auslese.

And Laura’s still waiting for that perfect year to strike again - she hasn’t made this wine since then!

This would go wonderfully well with any cheese course, or a dessert with fruit in it.

Laura says: 'Classic tarte flambée with onions and bacon (or as a onion tart) and tarte flambée with goat's cheese, onion and honey, few ingredients, but super tasty, not too heavy and goes perfectly with the wine (the goat cheese should not be too dominant), bacon from the village butcher and onions from the local farmer.'
