    March 29, 2019 - Opened with Thai food. Lovely gold in color. Precise aromas of citrus, honey, orchard fruits, berries and minerals. Perfectly balanced beam of ripe and sweet poached marmalade and brisk acidity, minerals and a long floral and off-dry finish.

    July 22, 2018 - Light gold in color. Peach, apricots and passion fruit. Lovely silky mouthfeel. Bright acidity and long persistent finish. Drink now.

    June 1, 2017 - 2003 WEINGUT DONNHOFF NORHEIMER DELLCHEN AUSLESE NAHE RIESLING- the nose had smoke and minerals then pear and apple notes came in with some stone fruit arriving late; loved the smooth texture which extended the finish.

    December 5, 2015 - Complex layers of light petrol, tropical fruit and lemon curd. Lots to explore on the nose and palate. Med + acid to balance out this Med Sweet Auslese.

    Very intense and evolved, but after a while it gets airier and lighter. Very good.
