    September 14, 2017 - Prager Dinner with Robert Bodenstein (Chicago, IL): Of the Klaus wines we tasted, this was the most lean, mineral, and taut. I found myself wishing for a little bit more sweetness or fruitiness to balance out all that mineral salinity. In addition, I found this showing a bit more green as well.

    January 6, 2016 - Not a wine to get you hooked on Wachau or this particular producer. The balance, the concentration is there but somehow the whole package is a bit mute and unexciting. I miss the liveliness, the transparency and the colours of the best Austrian wines.

    October 2, 2013 - Citrus, peach, discreet mineral notes. Quite reticent righ now. Medium body. Good, but not outstanding flavor intensity in the beginning, but by the midpalate the volume turns up. Deep mineral core, precise acidity, catching focus, the sip is just expanding with new and new impulses. Finish is really long. Balanced and integrated now but should gain complexity by time. Slightly less intense than most previous vintages, but spectacular for sure.

    May 4, 2013 - Wachau Spring Wine Festival (Wachauer Weinfrühling) (The Wachau): Like the Federspiel Steinriegl, a good whiff of beeswax and lemon sherbet on the nose, but more pronounced. Relatively austere on the palate, lemon and lime streaked, well structured, intense, with a dry yeastiness on the palate. € 35. ****+
