Katharina Prüm explains the Goldkapsel wines in this way: “Think of them as limited edition, small production lots of the best Auslese of a vintage. They are made from stronger, selected grapes containing higher concentrated juice, usually affected by a certain amount of botrytis, capable of ageing even remarkably longer than “basic” Auslesen, lasting for many decades. Over time, they lose some of their sweetness, gain more and more elegance and harmony, and the complex profile and depth come to the forefront.” In short, these extraordinary wines live and evolve for aeons. They can work with appropriately matched desserts (ideally fruit-based and, again, preferably not too sweet). However, they are, again, better paired (especially with age) with powerful, savoury dishes and with hard cheeses. You can throw anything at them, red meat included. They are far more versatile than most dry whites and certainly more so than all red wine styles. These are, as the name clearly suggests, designated by a golden capsule. They are some of the most revered Rieslings on the planet, and the 2017s—born from low yields and exceptionally pure botrytis—do not disappoint.
