    December 19, 2019 - Light color. Lots of petrol on the nose with dried apricots. Good acidity but fruit seems to be waning a bit. A bit past peak but still enjoyable. This isn’t tasting as sweet as an older auslese tasted alongside. At this stage, it feels more like a spätlese. Will keep but likely not improve. Would still be stupendous with Chinese food.

    November 22, 2018 - Classic nose that’s by far the best thing about this wine at 19. No spine no acidity. Insipid

    February 24, 2018 - Garagiste selection

    Color: pale yellow gold
    Aroma: Medium-full intensity; lots of fresh tropical fruits and citrus; some
    coconut and lychee nut notes
    Body/flavor: Medium; Complex rich flavors of fresh and dried tropical
    fruits. Acid and sweetness are very well-balanced
    Aftertaste: lingering

    Wine continues to impress!
