    September 28, 2019 - This is young, obviously, but with hours of air things start to happen. This is certainly a big wine, a hint rough on the edges still, long finish and not too elegant at the moment. Yet charming, and I admit I'm curious how this will evolve going forward. Moreover, proper food will dampen the wine as such, and basically anything goes with this one - but do note that it it a big wine. The tropical-like elements and pure fruit is appreciated and a eye-opener for why I do like Wittmann in the first place. Accessible but with a long life ahead.

    August 31, 2019 - Wittmann Morstein 2015.
    Svær vin med sinnsyk konsentrasjon.
    Sitter en evighet.
    Mangler kanskje litt på elegansen.
    Blir litt klumpete og er litt slitsom å drikke.
    Vanskelig å score.

    July 30, 2019 - The wine is clear, medium golden with a green hue, developing

    Nose is clean, medium intense nose of peach, apricot, red apples, lemon, passionfruit, chalk, tropical fruit, developing

    Palate is dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, medium+ flavour intensity, body and high dry extract with aromas of peach, nectarine, tropical fruit, red apples, passionfruit, lemon, long finish.

    Very well balanced, long fruit and acid driven finish, intense acidity mixed almost perfectly with the stonefruit aromas, high concentration, deep complexity. It has developed more than expected, but still needs more time. Outstanding quality, 95p+

    July 23, 2019 - I really liked this a lot and I thought it gained weight over a few days but also showed a distinctly mineral focus and it has nice grip and acidity. I can see how some people might not think this was rich or fruity enough but I enjoyed it.
