From the description on the back of the bottle, I figured this was made in an off-dry style. It turns out it tastes like a dessert wine even though it’s not as sweet as a dessert wine. It tastes of honeyed, dried yellow pear and some apricot, acid of fresh white pear and nectarine, tinge of golden raisin. I would guess the sweetness level is roughly between those of a German Kabinett and a Spätlese. Like many wines with sugar and acid, the rest in the bottle was totally fine the next day.
