December 7, 2013 - Ninth Annual White Truffle Dinner (Chez Weber - Chicago IL): Tropical fruit aromas and flavors, also showing the sweetness of the vintage. Easy to enjoy, just a little one dimensional.

June 22, 2013 - Celebration for Bud's Seventieth Birthday (Eketahuna, New Zealand): Beautiful example of aged Riesling with 10 grams per litre of residual sugar. A point at the moment - this bottle enjoyed excellent bottle age character, stunning Riesling varietal fruit, great minerality and a strong acid backbone. The sugar contributes to a lush and opulent finish.

September 12, 2009 - Seemed a little plump and heavy at first. with air, it got much lighter footed. fine petrol notes and a range of ripe tropical notes. I think mark's note below was based on earlier observaions:
Nit-picking pehaps, but on our end of the table, we found that the Z-H, which seemed a little fat and perhaps tired at first, developed nicely in the glass over the course of the day. It got lighter and brighter and more alluring. Not all I had hoped for, but a very interesting evolution.

July 28, 2008 - massive petrol going on with this wine. Flowery undertones with almost a honey glazed feeling. Great mild sweetness to this wine that just lasted a good while on the mid palate. great overall wine
