Florus is a rare masterpiece of fruitiness and balance. Made exclusively with late-harvest Moscadello grapes, the nectar-rich raisins are gently pressed and fermented at low temperatures over a period of several months, then filtered and stored at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. The base of 85% of the wine, from the vintage year shown on the label, is then blended with 15% of the same wine from the previous vintage, which had been aged in barriques of French oak for one year and, subsequently, bottled. Its color is rich and golden with a flowery and exotic bouquet. The taste is sweet, full and warm with hints of honey, raisins and exotic fruits.

Deinhard Beeren Auslese 375cl 2002 $ 9.00

Beeren Auslese gains its golden color, honey bouquet, piquant berry sweetness, delicate fruit, great finesse, and fine maturation development, from the mixture of early ripening new crossbreed Ortega and late ripening Scheurebe. In very good years it is possible to make such a rich golden-coloured wine when individual bunches of over-ripe grapes shrink due to partial evaporation of the grape juice before picking.
