    September 18, 2020 - Classic riesling notes, minerals, good sweetness, a very delicious wine, but next to the 76 this kind of felt nondescript... I would wait at least another 10 years

    April 12, 2020 - Mineral, slight oily texture. Long, fresh and chock full of acidity which easily hides the spatlese sweetness. Dipped in the warm sunshine of a Sunday evening on on the patio in lockdown, to spoil ourselves. It worked. Thank you Herr Muller - delicious! No rush to drink, but if you ever needed an excuse......

    July 2, 2018 - Still light yellow. Aromas of white fruit, crystallized sugar, lime and petrol. On the palate, a nuanced combination of light and long. Some tropical notes and mineral. A wonderfully harmonious wine with many years ahead of it.

    December 31, 2017 - 3rd of 6, pnp, perfect level cork fell apart into wine as last time, little changed from note 2 years ago, spritzy, youthful and tad simple, downgraded to reflect Muller's purchase of sub-standard corks. VGI (17) - 2 pull throughs shows carelessness!

    October 5, 2017 - Obviously fuller and sweeter than the 90 Kab alongside, but a little less nuanced and complex, the kerosine/petroleum jelly aromas a little more concentrated, the wine a little rounder. Lovely, but lacks the filigree grace of the Kab. Bare ****
