    July 29, 2019 - Day 2. This is better when cold as it's definitely a warmer and fuller version of this wine (always has been.) Tons of orchard fruit (peach, apple, pear), some apricot, lots of spices, massive saline and mineralty and brothiness. Similar on the palate - spicy and peach and apple and peach pit, really salty and juicy. When warm this loses some focus and gets more bitter. The finish is saline, minerals and bitter pit. This showed better than I expected - keep it cold and drink up. Nose - 5/6, Palate - 5-5.5/6, Finish - 4.5-5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 16-17/20.

    September 14, 2017 - Prager Dinner with Robert Bodenstein (Chicago, IL): Like the Achleiten, stewy and likely heat-damaged.

    June 3, 2016 - Wowzer. Sixteen years young. So youthful and vibrant. Practically spritzy. Terrific lemony zest, creamy and orchard fruit. The acidity is fantastic. The depth and concentration is well balanced. This is an outstanding effort. This should age effortless for another 30 years.

    December 23, 2015 - I rather liked this wine. Opens up with a nice petrol nose, telltale streak of Wachau acidity, white peppery, flinty finish. But after a few hours the acidity disappears and the warmth of the vintage appears. Very well balanced compact yet complex. But not getting better from here and should enjoy my last bottle sooner rather than alte.r

    October 5, 2015 - This is in a good spot. No fruit, just minerality and some oily/petrol notes at this point. Very big and dense in the mouth but well-balanced by acidity. A touch of heat on palate and finish. Enjoyed this over 2 nights though it was fading a bit on night 2.
