    August 27, 2018 - Fresh but a little muted on the nose, this is pineapple and green apple. As it warmed in the glass a floral element popped up. The palate is slightly frizzante, with a very rich, clean taste.

    January 9, 2018 - Subtile Ananas-, Kräuter- und Zitrusaromen, ausgeprägte mineralische Note; am Gaumen gut eingebundene, druckvolle Säure, guter Schmelz, langer Abgang; weiter komplett überzeugender feiner, spannender und toller Wein; gut entwickelt, schön zu trinken

    December 11, 2017 - beautiful light golden color, fragrant nose of apricots, tangerine zest, lime zest and a wisp of honey, with a subtle background of rieslingesque minerality (i.e., petrol). on the palate, the wine is round and mouth-filling slightly sweetish but perfectly balanced with tangy acidity. absolutely stunning.

    May 14, 2017 - Eher subtile Ananas- und Zitrusaromen, ausgeprägte mineralische Noten; am Gaumen kräftige Säure mit gutem Schmelz, fast schmerzhaft trocken-salzig mit sehr langem Abgang, in dem die Zitrusfrucht wieder durchkommt; spannender und toller Wein; um noch mehr zu punkten, fehlt im einzig das Bouquet...

    February 5, 2017 - Wonderful nose, pineapple and lemon, some seawater and good mineral quality, a very good dry riesling with a bright acidity, long finish. Great partner to garlicky shrimp and pasta and a salad of bitter greens, bacon, shallots.
