    May 1, 2013 - The first night, this was rather tame without much nose, much acid, but had mineral notes in spades as it almost seemed to be effervescent. Day 2 this wine really took on a whole different facade. Rich, decadent, mouth coating and juicy thanks to subtle acid that meld this into an almost brilliant dessert type wine. Navel orange, peaches and whipped cream, a touch of some unidentified tropical fruits, maybe lychee, but very smooth and hard to believe that this is a Spatlese. This would give many sauternes a run for their money. With a lower ABV, this is so much smoother, it really is shining tonight. Straw colored and golden, the bottle showed signs of seepage and crystallization around the cork. I was worried, but this is in its comfort zone. Awesome bottle.
