    August 3, 2017 - Purchased at the Frankfurt airport duty free a few years ago, this got "lost" in my cellar. Well no matter, as it was still very fresh, with plenty of stone fruit and tropical tones, as well as refreshing acidity. Lovely wine that was right there with top Pinot Blancs I have had from producers such as Boxler or Hiedler.

    June 21, 2015 - Deep yellow, oily texture. Bursts with tropical fruits, sweet and exotic. Vanilla and a tiny bit of grass in the background. A very compelling, yet simple and straight forward, nose. Nicely balanced acidity on the palate and some liquorice in the aftertaste. Highly drinkable and the qpr is just insane at €11.

    January 22, 2015 - (Mostly) Northern Rhone Night (Browntrout - Chicago, IL): Fresh, fresh, fresh. Thought that some air benefitted the wine as it started off a bit plump, but the softness seemed to slink away with some air and was replaced by fresh cut melons and herbs. This isn't a long-term wine, I think. Probably in a good spot for the next 3-5 years.

    January 22, 2015 - Geeky Syrah Night at Browntrout (Chicago, IL): This has a very tropical and fruity nose, with a slight bit of pineapple character. The palate seems like it has a bit of residual sugar (despite the label saying this is trocken). If you've had those Kasugai muscat gummy candies, you'll understand what I mean when I say that this had a little bit of a Japanese grape candy flavour on the palate. Nonetheless, this was very light and tasty, but also fatter, richer, and with less acidic cut than wines made from the grape for which Dönnhoff is so rightly famous.

    February 10, 2014 - next bottle of this fine stuff, and again...... very good with food, often fish, this time perch, but can easily accompany sausage, meat or chorizo as well, midweight body, still very fresh, long finish, 87- 89+?
