    October 25, 2019 - Really nice. Not as sweet as the ‘92 Auslese we had next to it, but that’s to be expected from the Spatlese. Well Balanced.

    August 19, 2018 - Very much still alive. Maybe a bit further into the oxidation scale than the previous bottle but otherwise the notes match.

    Dried apricot, peaches, smoke. Candied orange peel and a bit of bruised apple. Stunningly complex.

    Finishes with intense citric acidity.

    January 15, 2016 - Clear golden in color. Clean nose of apple, honey, and petrol. Off dry, med acidity, med body. Honey, floral, and Apple on palate. Nice finish. Great acidity still in wine, and still lots of fruit. Not for everyone, but I really enjoyed.

    January 11, 2015 - Medium-dark gold color. Mature nose of petrol and honey, with a fresh aroma of honeysuckle. The wine starts sweet on the palate but gains complexity as it moves towards the back of the mouth, finishing with a lingering aftertaste of Meyer lemon and some residual acidity. This is a little too off-dry to pair with main dishes, but would make a lovely digestif. Drinking just fine right now; I'd consume any more while there is still acidic support remaining.

    September 26, 2014 - This is an old Spatlese, that tastes quite dry. It has a beautiful golden color, obvious oxidation, but remains with great acidity. This is an acquired taste.
