    March 16, 2016 - Last bottle, alas. More delightful than ever, and this cork in perfect condition. Deepening straw yellow color. Peaches and tangerines, with vivid citrus that was accompaniment to the lively acidity on the palate. Long finish. Excellent pairing with the Northern Indian from Tandoori Mela: Lamb Roghan Josh, okra, etc. Stood a cut above the other wines, including the 2001 Hexamer Rheingrafenberg.

    February 25, 2015 - Wonderful as always; no sign of the sell-by date. Citrus and baked apple. Luscious and long. Paired with Origin's Massaman curry, Pad Kee Mao, and Gra Praw.

    May 23, 2014 - While refreshing and enjoyable, this is pretty much like lemonade.

    March 13, 2014 - Wine-Septet meeting hosted by me (chez moi): light yello-straw colour
    fresh tropical fruity aroma of apple, melon, peach & lime
    rich, dense, full body, high acidity, melon, peach, lichee, stone-fruit and light honey flavors, balanced, harmonious, pleasant minerality. long pure aftertaste. A great pleasure.
    will continue to age beautifully.

    August 8, 2013 - Dönnhoff tasting (AuZone, Stockholm): Appearance: light yellow, some green tinge, some “spritz”.
    Nose: citrus, a hint of green notes, mineral, smoke, some development with petrol notes.
    Palate: off-dry+/semi-sweet, citrus, yellow apple, honey, high acidity, quite concentrated, honey notes and a fresh finish.
    Summary: Heavier than the 2005 Dellchen Spätlese, good balance. A fantastic off-dry wine, 91 p.
