    March 29, 2015 - Very ripe and very sweet, but not ponderous. There's acidity to balance the sugar, though not quite enough for my taste. This tastes more like a GKA than a spatlese. No botrytis bitterness detected. With more acidity this would be an outstanding wine.

    June 28, 2013 - Medium to full body, with an extraordinary mouthfeel, and great balance. Flavors of green mango, grilled pineapple, apple, and waxy honeysuckle. Long waxy, mineral finish that morphed into zesty lemon notes over two hours. Began loosing its earlier crispness. Held up quite well to a spicy-sour tom yum soup. Cork broke toward the end. I can see this easily being confused for an Auslese in a few years. 92+

    November 22, 2011 - Medium to full body but not at all cloying; typical petrol on the nose, which vanishes after oxidation; on the palate notes of honeyed apple and lime, and faint petrol on the back palate; medium plus, crisp finish that leaves a honeyed/minerally aftertaste. Overall, the sweetness is very well framed by a medium acidity. 88-89

    June 25, 2009 - Very good. Quite ripe with weight of the vintage but somehow remains light. Not at all tiring or ponderous. Ripe yellow fruits, good balance, pretty honeysuckle note at the end.
