  • Tasting Notes Group A:

    Appearance: (3/3)
    Clarity clear with light green and straw colour, offering excellent depth and a good gradation.
    Nose: (4/7)
    Good condition with light intensity of wood, inviting aromas with a forthcoming complexity.
    Palate: (6/10)
    Short initial entry and follow through with pungent pineapple and gooseberry aromas, ensuring a high acidity to be balanced out with a light fruity bouquet of flavours. Wine with medium weight and intensity.
    Conclusion: (13/20)
    Young wine with promising aromas and further age potential (+- 5 years). High acid content does not succeed to follow through and add further complexity when balanced with the fruit.

  • Tasting notes group B

    A clear conditioned Riesling with a straw colour.
    In the nose a herbal and fruity smell with hints of grass and lime.
    The wine has a harsh and dry entry with medium-high acidity. The taste of Granny Smith and lime is clear and straight forward. Good follow trough.The wine is off balanced by its acidity and is light weighted. A simple complexity and short aftertaste.
    This dry Rhine Riesling is not a lot of excitement, it is a simple but well produced wine. Can age longer.

    CWA points scale: 13.5/20
