2008 Joseph Phelps "Eisrébe" Napa Valley Late Harvest Scheurebe (375ml)
Assertive, extremely sugary sweet flavors have an equally extreme juicy acidity to balance them out. Musky herb, orange blossom and rose water mingle with lemon drop and apple turnover flavors. Very intense and delicious. (Web-2010)

Pale yellow-gold. Peach and apricot nectar and honey on the slightly high-toned nose. Dense, thick and sweet, but the fruit salad and honey flavors are kept fresh by ripe acids. Finishes bright, pure and long, with an enticing sugar/acid balance. Made from frozen Scheurebe grapes, but vintages that bring botrytis to the fruit (2006 was the most recent one) are exceptions.
