    May 3, 2021 - Stunning definition and precision on this wine. Petrol, lime cordial, snake fruit and passionfruit nose, it's lithe and spritely, while incredibly expansive on the palate. Acid in perfect balance with the fruit - the tension is just fabulous. I've noted some comments that talk about sweetness. There is residual sugar no doubt, but this is very energetic, even for a spaetlese in style. Think somewhere between Clare Valley and the Nahe and you might be able to put an image together. Stunning with Japanese dishes, but definitely not one for pudding or most cheeses. Has years left.

    November 6, 2020 - This is the third bottle I've had at two year intervals, with strikingly without change. Certainly enjoyable now, but I guess I'll check min again in 2 more years.

    September 13, 2020 - Unfortuntely the LAST bottle of this New World gem.
    Similiar notes to Feb 2019 :
    On both nose and palate, consistent and finely balanced some flavour variations at 10 years of age , slightly earthier , with notes of ripe quince and cantaloupe, and the acidity has softened and woven well into the fruit and coriander components ....as it warms notes of ginger and white pepper add a lively touch....the wine is reminiscent of a 2011 Trimbach cuvee Frederic Emile , but not quite as complex ...can still age.

    November 9, 2019 - A slight downgrade from the Feb 2019 notes.....all of the previous notes stand....BUT...this wine's acidity is diminishing and the sweet side is taking over ....definitely a wine for water biscuits and stilton rather than main courses.

    February 18, 2019 - A superb new world Riesling.
    On nose: damp earth, moss and diesel.
    On palate: the follow through of flavours remain.....BUT do they ever take a back seat to the fresh peach, tart lime , wax and botrytis!.....as the wine warms up, elements of blood orange and gala apple with a compliment of coriander flesh out this surprisingly full bodied wine.....the balance of sweetness and acidity leans more to sweetness, without being cloying.
    I would be FAR more inclined to serve this with water biscuits , Stilton or Roquefort, toasted almonds ,and apple and pear slices as a dessert .....not so much a dinner wine.....Will age well.
