    October 18, 2013 - Light yellow with green reflexes. Young & vibrant!
    Aromas of Stonefruits and little Grapefruit. Honeydew Melon.
    More fruit with Gooseberry and even Cassis (!).
    Freshness of Floral and Herbal characters.
    Straightforward, fresh and inviting with elegance and power!
    Flavors of, again, Stonefruit- mostly Peach- Citrus and Gooseberry.
    Beautiful fruity acidity. Decent Minerality.
    Intense, long finish with Yellow Fruit and emphasis on Herbal Spiciness (Anise!).
    In the beginning clean and tight with a soft and light mouthfeel, but developing power and density on the mid- palate and finish.
    Harmonious and elegant with medium complexity.
    A nicely balanced, very approachable and delicious wine!
    It still appears very young with no signs of aging at all.
    Beautiful crisp- and freshness, filigree minerality and a powerful finish.

    August 21, 2012 - Pale straw colour, almost no colour at all. Mild nose although at time of tasting this was opened for some time ( the things we find at the BA lounge at T5). On the palate it is at its best, light sweet kabinet like notes, light nutty, medium bodied and harmonious. Quite enjoyable to be honest in its lightness. 89

    March 8, 2011 - Straw colour. Nutty and fresh fruity lift in the nose. Structured, long. E. Tasted at the Prinz von Hessen dinner at Schlosshotel Kronberg.

    February 11, 2010 - Partly fermented on its skins, apparently.
    Very fresh and open on the nose. There's a nice open crispness on the palate. Works well.
