Villa Palatina Trockenbeerenauslese 2005


Excellent dessert wine. Bough this wine at Trader Joe's for 19.95$, I feel this is well priced wine and if you like Trockenbeerenauslese go buy it now. This wine is made from the Ortega grape, which is used for white wine blending in the Rheinhessen region of Germany. The wine is very nicely balanced with strong notes of honey, apricot and peach. Silky feel on the tongue with citrus notes.

Marius' Rating: 91

I agree with shanon marie, this is the stuff dreams are made of, or with. I have now bought about 7 bottles of this sweet wine. I have never tasted a sweet wine as best as this. It's what we dream to taste, and there it is in all its glory -- absolutely beautifully made wine.
