    November 28, 2020 - Wow, this is delicious! I’ve got some boneless Heritage pork chops marinating in soy sauce and Dijon mustard that I will be throwing on the grill soon and this should be perfect with those. Dry on the palate, yet showing some real substance. A lengthy finish - hard to imagine this getting any better, but it doesn’t feel tired either, so drink or hold.

    July 8, 2017 - Regular dinner group (@ PZ): In the bouquet yellow fruits and minerals. Slightly sweet start with ripe white and tropical yellow fruits, good acidity and soft bitterness.

    August 15, 2016 - Hirtzberger Hochrain (Sovana Bistro, Kennett Square, PA): From a day two glass. Really nice, intense nose with some herbal/floral and wet stone/slate notes. Today the wine is a little softer, rounder. Citrus and tart tangerine. Really nice and still very young.

    May 29, 2015 - As usual a seductive wine. Apricot and peach. Intense but one layer.
