    December 28, 2020 - Very pretty and soft at this stage , polished acidity and with a touch of an off dry edge albeit we are pretty sure this is a dry white. Soft petrol edge on the nose, light caramel, ripe stone fruits, tropical edge. Very good 92

    March 21, 2020 - More balanced and attractive than my previous bottle, this wine--from what's typically my favorite Pichler bottling--shows ripe fruits and pronounced minerals in a big, bold package. This has the weight and length of a grand vin. Serious wine that's seriously good. Perhaps not as 3-D as my absolute favorite Austrians, but this is darn good.

    January 31, 2020 - Winespecials Wine Evening (Restaurant Waldhorn, Kirchheim, Germany): Glass: Gabriel Standard
    Popped and poured, from Magnum. Do not serve this wine too cold. It needs at least 11-12 degrees to fully unfold its flavours.
    Clear, medium golden color. Clean, medium+ intense nose with clean botrytis, ripe pineapple and apricot, honey, mineral core. Needs air and temperature to unfold.
    On the palate dry, medium+ acidity, 13,5% abv, well integrated. Lots of power, pressure, wonderful mineral core, botrytis, ripe yellow stone fruit. Also some “band aid” notes. Very long. Still young, needs 2-3+ years. 93-94+

    August 25, 2019 - Honningmelon, pasjonsfrukt, ananas og ørlite snev av banan. Flott friskhet i munnen på tross av den litt tunge frukten. Merkbar safran på smak.Flott fylde og intensitet. Litt saltpreg mot slutten før den glir over i lang ettersmak med deilig sødme og fin bitterhet. Herlig vin og beste flaske så langt. Kraftig, østerriksk stil, men ikke en sær vin lenger.

    January 16, 2019 - Tropisk frukt på nese, litt på den tunge sida - banan og aprikos. Fra først av også litt svovel og rosin som blåser av. Intens i munnen, men friskere enn på lukt, mer i retning eple, med god syrestruktur og deilig frisk ettersmak. Så mye frukt at det gir e lite inntrykk av sødme selv om vinen er tørr - helt annerledes enn tysk riesling. Litt preg av nedfallsfrukt, men overhodet ikke negativt. Deilig vin i distinkt østerriksk stil.
