    May 14, 2017 - Similar impressions as the last bottle from about a year ago. Solid, but lacking a little energy.

  • winemaker Likes this wine: 89 points

    April 7, 2017 - Solid effort, but not amazing. Smells kind of tight with a bit of sulphur on the nose which muted the nose a bit. Not nearly as rich as the 2009 Jakob Schneider Magnus Trocken that I had just before this. Kind of an angular wine.

    November 27, 2016 - Pretty good...solid Riesling nose and decent palate, although a tad more acidic than might have been ideal....87-89

    June 5, 2016 - This wine just seems to be coming into its own. It was best after an hour's aeration when it had warmed up a bit. Quite dry and spicey on the palate with a long, pleasing finish. Very pleasing. I'm sure it will improve further with additional years of bottle age.

    May 18, 2016 - I need to check the vintage on this because our impressions are not similar to the other notes here. I found this to have quite a bit of fruit, with a creamy, almost oily mouth feel. Some petrol and slate notes to accent that wine. A touch of salinity and a fair amount of acid. My only knock on the wine is that I think it could use just a little more acid. We enjoyed the wine. I am going to check to make sure it wasn't the 13 vintage instead.
