January 9, 2014 - Honeysuckle flavors little bit of petrol on the nose. Could use a little more acidity, but that's quibbling.

September 5, 2013 - Had with sushi. Pale to medium straw color. A bit on the sweet, overly ripe side of the spectrum, no doubt owing to the excessively hot vintage. Bigger & rounder mouthfeel than usual. Didn't have sufficiently crisp acidity to balance vs the fruit as in better vintages, and didn't have overt minerality or petrol qualities that I love about these wines, but was still pleasant enough as this is a fine winemaker. Certainly has some time left so I look forward to revisiting this one down the road to see how it develops/improves.

August 7, 2013 - I thought this was a very nice bottle. Hard expressing it as it was my first german riesling. Different from the alsace wines. But i liked it. I had heard it was an off year and it might not be very good by now. I can assure you that it was fine. Open one up if you have the chance.
May 29, 2013 - Beautiful. Had next to the Norheimer Dellchen and it was restrained by comparison. Not very sweet, a little butterscotch flavor, very long finish.
