Esterházy Beerenauslese is a completely delicious sweet wine which represents wonderful value for money. It is moreish, elegant and with everything we all love in sweet wine, honeysuckle, almonds and toffee - while still having refreshingly clean acidity. It looks the part and for a sweet wine of this calibre is well worth stocking up on to pull out at dinner parties!

About

The Princes Esterházy, who employed Haydn for 30 years as court composer, have been making wine since the early 18th century and were one of the largest landowners in Europe until 1939. Both Empress Maria Theresa and Goethe were especially fond of Estoras wines and Haydn enjoyed them so much that he asked for his salary to be partly paid in wine. The label of their Grüner Veltliner Estoras 2010 bears the Golden Fleece, the highest chivalric order of the Burgundian kings and the Habsburg emperors, founded in 1430.

"Esterházy Beerenauslese 2012 – 37.5cl - £14.95 amber-mahogany with aromas of white flowers, beeswax, roasted sweet spices and over-roasted peaches. Full, oily substantial and intensely sweet with just enough freshness to keep it all in check. Match with strong, creamy cheeses or sticky toffee pudding." - The Cambridge Blogger (on a previous vintage)
