May 15, 2016 - Pale lemon yellow. In the nose flint, some petrol and rather ripe fruit, such as peach, pineapple. Also a touch of wild meadow flower honey.
Medium body which is nicely carried by the acidity and the minerality. The aromas on the palate mirror the nose, with the addition of orange (blossom). Long finish. Overall well balanced. Now already a bit on the mature side but still hanging in there nicely.
March 12, 2016 - Riesling Blitzkrieg by fc1910; 3/11/2016-3/12/2016 (Teatro Campos Elíseos - Bilbao): Austere on the nose and pretty acid in the mouth. Vintage doesn't help.
Austera nariz y ácida en boca. La añada no ayuda.

August 10, 2014 - A Großes Gewächs summernight: quite a lot petrol on the nose and palate, some honeylike flavours, tropical fruit such as mango, limy minerality, but for me at this moment too ripe bottle, **- ***?, 84- 86+?

July 4, 2014 - matured colour, a shining bright golden, intense mineralic flavours in the nose, some green and yellow fruits, on the palate a herbal appearance, some green apples, spicy and smoky, needs a lot of air still, develops in the glass over two hours to a more balanced and complex wine, tight, maybe should wait some more (3+) years, long finish, *(**+), 88-91+?

December 12, 2013 - Pale yellow with green hues; nose of candied lime, clean and mineral driven, green apple; palate is richer but very focused and German- not generous but substantial, lime and green apple continue, smoky slate adds depth, and the finish echoes with a hint of white pepper, through all of it an impressive vein of acidity keeps everything taut and delicious; had at Aria, went ok with several dishes but I thought it showed its best with the trout with lump crab meat in a sunchoke purée where the wine brought out the salinity and the fish really showed its best.1 person found this helpful Comment
