Clear, medium-light yellow, very narrow watery rim. Clean nose, petrol, citrus and tropical fruits, quite floral, hint of honey. Medium palate, acid nicely balances the sweetness. Long finish. Overall, similar to previous tasting note - although development isn't that noticeable at this stage.
The bottle showed signs of leakage under the capsule, so we seized on that flimsy excuse to pop this open on a Tuesday evening to accompany a stir fry. Truly infanticide. Despite a very wet cork, the wine showed no damage whatsoever. Pale gold, with a pleasant nose of light petrol and flowers. Slightly petillant, with substantial tropical fruit sweetness offset by just enough acidity and minerality to keep it from being cloying. Long, lingering finish. My sense is that this is just coming into its own and although this wine isn't likely to ever be mindblowing, it should continue to improve for many more years.
Medium yellow colour, very slight spritz. Petrol and tropical fruits on the nose. Light in the mouth. Clearly off dry but not too sweet - nice acidity holding it together. Long finish. Very good Riesling but undoubtedly will continue to develop over the next few years. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens.

(Eitelsbacher Karthausherhofberg Spatlese) Red-fruited nose with cherries and slab of minerals poking into the foreground. Incredibly complex palate with loads of fruit pulp. Inner mouth pine aromas while you swish add to the insane mineral complexity. Brilliant Spatlese. Up there with the Zilliken Saarburger Rausch with one of the best values in the Mosel in 2005.
