April 28, 2014 - A bit mute when first opened, not showing much aroma or palate, just a bit of chalky minerality. After some air, this unfolded and expressed lovely citrus fruit flavors, straw, pleasing citrus pith bitterness and palate staining weight. Deep and intense with excellent persistence. An intense mineral bath of a finish. Gorgeous showing, but this needs air.

March 29, 2014 - Typical Austrian Riesling nose. Lot of evolution in the glass, especially in first 15 minutes. Initially was a bit flat but seemed to come alive after a few minutes. Lot of acidity. Lime, citrus and a bit of saltiness. Long and classic finish.

January 7, 2013 - Large and packed riesling. Ripe yet still drinkable.
July 30, 2012 - this is not a showy wine. the thing that moves me about it is its pronounced sense of harmony. it sows classic Wachau Riesling aromas, flavors, and texture, and the fruit is beautiful. but it's the savory mineral undertones, the vibrant but gentle acidity, the perfect balance that gets me. Lovely.

April 14, 2012 - Peach and nectarine with sweet orange notes on the nose. Rich palate with a bizarrely dry orange marmalade concentration. A mineral foundation integrated with riper fruits like pineapple, red apple and lemon zest. Big bodied and a long finish, this will get better with some more time.
