    February 4, 2020 - Prior bottle was just over a year ago and this wine continues to shine. Apple, pear and citrus notes on the nose along with floral and mineral qualities. Medium bodied with lemon, apple and pear upfront and the moving to white peach and green melon through the middle. As the wine integrates, the white orchard fruits that were previously concealed by the citrus notes and the acidity are becoming more noticeable in a positive fashion. Tart citrus, excellent acidity and then mineral qualities mark the backside and the finish. While the acidity is still quite vibrant, the fruit continues to shine through more brightly each year. Given where the structure and fruit notes are today, this wine is clearly still improving, with actually quite a number of years in front of it.

    January 23, 2019 - Prior bottle was 10 months ago and this wine continues to show well. Lots of citrus notes on the nose (especially lemon), coupled with floral and mineral qualities. Medium bodied and retains the tart lemon note upfront, but was slightly better integrated with the mid-body notes of white peach and pear. It also felt like the mid-body was slightly more open and expressive than previously. Continues to finish with mineral notes and floral qualities along with very good acidity. Overall, I would say, the acidity and fruit are moving into balance; the acidity doesn't have quite the edge it did for prior bottles and the fruit notes, especially through the middle were slightly more distinctive. The complexity and depth remain better than your typical kabinett. With one bottle left, I will save it for Q1 2020.

    December 21, 2018 - PNP. cork perfect. color straw. Nose has candied apricot and lime? Swishing this shows the acid structure along with the RS. sipping shows long finish - this has perfect balance to me.

    June 6, 2018 - Tasty and characterful, offering plenty of stony minerality, lime-apple-peach sort of fruit mix, and generous jasmine. Moderately sweet, balanced by ample acidity. Light in weight, with a touch of silkiness. Good stuff. Quite open for business still; seems like drink or hold.

    March 1, 2018 - Prior bottle was just over 11 months ago and this wine continues to show impressively, with even more future potential. Opened at 44F, warming to 51F and showed the best at the warmer end of that range. On the cooler side, the acidity served to mask a good part of the mid-body fruit. As it warmed, not only did the fruit become bright and expressive, but the acidity kept pace; moving from an inhibiting factor to an amplifying one. Lemon, grapefruit and other mixed citrus notes on the nose along with a hint of tart peach, floral and lots of slate/stone/mineral qualities. Medium bodied with strong lemon notes upfront, along with grapefruit and lime and then tart orchard fruits through the middle (tart peach and white pear). As the wine warmed, the mid-body was an exciting mix of tart fruit notes, acidity, and richer background qualities. Finishes with floral notes and strong mineral qualities along with plenty of acidity. If opening now, make sure to serve cool, but not cold. Especially for a kabinett, this wine shows impressive depth and complexity. Based on how its shown over the past year, it clearly has several more years before it even peaks and more years beyond that. At this price and quality, I will certainly be picking up some more. Next bottle in March/April 2019.
