    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.

    October 5, 2012 - Very dry (residual sugar 1.5), with bright acidity with even a slight sour note, green apple flavors with a smooth finish with some roundness to it. May be a bit tight still, at least the bottle we had tasted at the winery.

    May 6, 2011 - Tasting notes consistent with huse review below. Outstanding balance of mineral, fruit and acid, playful and complex, with almonds on the nose. Remarkable value. Would likely be wonderful and more nuanced with some age, but fabulous now.
