    March 27, 2021 - Enjoyable gruner with some depth and weight. The ginger aroma was somewhat overwhelming to me on the nose. But the wine complex and very interesting on the palate.

    November 3, 2020 - I don't have much experience with GVs more than 2 or 3 years old, but aromatically this seemed to be indicating some signs of development. Or maybe it was a bit of botrytis? Either way, I was really pleased with how this was showing. It had great intensity and richness, plenty of structural backbone, and the aromatic precision that I've come to expect from Prager.

    February 21, 2019 - PnP. Pretty, with good lift. Mid body, mid+ acid. 14%

    September 14, 2017 - Prager Dinner with Robert Bodenstein (Chicago, IL): Of the GVs we had tonight, I would say this was my overall favourite. This was the most linear and precise of the wines, showing a good dose of acidity and a strong mineral backbone. On top of that was the freshness and zestiness of the young vintage. Fresh white pineapple notes on the nose and palate are really prominent.

    April 30, 2016 - Like the Federspiel "Hinter der Burg" a little muted on the nose. White pepper, slightly herbal, floral, showing notes of crushed stones and yellow stone fruit, quince? On the palate remarkably polished, spicy, intense fruit. Lovely acidity. Very long and precise with wonderful minerality and impressive length. Superb. 94-95+
