    May 28, 2017 - Popped and poured at fridge temp. Petrolly notes with a bit of apple in the background on the nose. Sweet apricot with excellent acidity on the palate, quite light and racy. A nice auslese!

    June 28, 2014 - A rather subdued nose of generic rieslingness. The lean and clean palate brings some apricot, apple, and citrus to the game. The acidity keeps the sweetness in check somehow. A rather balanced whole, nothing really shouts attention to itself. Easy to drink, pleasant and a bit moreish.

    May 29, 2014 - Initially some petrolly notes, smells which will surely become stronger with time. Rather mute at the moment, light apricot, wet wool. palate is quite light and racy at the moment, lots of acidity, sweet, but very lightly so, good apricots. Seems very young at the moment, will leave the others to wait for some years.

    April 12, 2014 - Smells like classic riesling. Very young nose, no sign of petroleum at this age. A bit muted but good.

    Palate is sweet, but a crisp backbone of acidity behind it. Good with strawberries.

    50+5+11+12+7 (85p)

    April 12, 2014 - Not very complex, but its still a sweet and nice wine. Maybe a bit young still, so it might flourish when it gets older.
