    June 7, 2019 - Picked this up at a shop in Cape Town since my wife had never had a Riesling before. I probably shouldn't have set such a high bar because this wine was stunning. We drank it over 3 nights and it never dropped off a bit. Wonderful nose of petrol, guava, flowers, and stone fruit. Perfectly balanced between the bit of sweetness and the vibrant acidity. It had a nice, long finish to it and it even felt like it picked up a bit of tannic grip on the 2nd and 3rd nights. This was amazing but has a very long life ahead of it.

    May 10, 2019 - This was slightly darker than the last bottle. As per my last bottle, this gave the impression of Pear and white flowers, but with a noticeable and developing tinge of honey. The sweetness is receding and it, together with the acidity, has blended seamlessly into the wine. It lingers in the mouth, without being heavy or cloying. Should definitely get better. A beauty and my best bottle of this to date. As an aside, when lovely with mackerel oath (and indomie)

    November 10, 2018 - It’s okay I guess but I cannot work up any enthusiasm. Moderately sweet, just slightly more than Spätlese. But flabby. Without the requisite acidity or minerality it’s just not very interesting. Grapey and fruity enough, though.

    (J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Auslese) What a nose! Just the essence of Graach. Brilliant. If you have some of this wine you will be happy. With all of it's complex fruit and spice it is truly refreshing.
