This was harvested at the end of April from the home vineyard, when the sugars had risen to 27º brix and the flavours had gained weight and spice. The wine was fermented as dry as possible, finally being stopped at about 13.5% alcohol with around 50 grams residual sugar. The wine is in the style of the Alsace 'vendage tardive', showing typical weight and richness without obvious sweetness. The nose shows some rose petals underlaid with citrus peel and spices: The palate is rich and honeyed - again with the typical spices, lychees and orange zest. Overall the wine has similarities to the '90 Selection, being more fine-grained and perhaps a little broader on the palate at this stage.
