    February 15, 2020 - the cork failed upon extraction, there is some chance this had gotten a bit of extra oxygen exposure prior to opening. Quite dark in color, a deep golden, more akin to a 25 year old Sauternes than a riesling of this age. Still quite sweet, not a lot of cut. Finish was quite short.

    December 26, 2019 - Dark golden color, nice fruity oaky nose, exotic fruits and nice acidic backbone. Really enjoyable.

    May 31, 2019 - Textbook German riesling at a high level. Acidity may not be as solid and penetrating as the best years, but this is in balance as long as you understand that a bit of residual sugar is par for the course here. Drink over the next decade.
