    May 3, 2019 - Rather flat initially. Better after 4 hours.
    89-92

    February 6, 2019 - A little subdued on the nose. Citrus pith, white flowers, quartz. Similar to the Kabinett, great balance but I would prefer a little more acidity for balance. Some mandarin fruits too, alongside green apple. A touch short on the finish.

    January 12, 2019 - Light gold-yellow in color. Full, forward & fragrant nose of ripe fruit aromas of apples, pears, apricots/peaches & lime zest with overtones of lovely floral notes of honeysuckle & mineral/slate notes, honey, stones, spices & a hint of flintiness in the background. Light bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced & smooth textured, zesty, ripe fruit flavors of yellow peaches, green apples, nectarines & citrus notes of limes with honey, spices, stony & minerals. Long lingering crisp finish with just a touch of sweetness. Drinks quite well at present but has the underlying structure & fruit to continue its evolution with additional aging. I believe given time, it will rate even higher. [A.P. Nr. 2 576 511 08 17; Alc. 8%]

    January 7, 2019 - Very nice. You can taste the land from where it came. Terroir.

    December 15, 2018 - I loved checking in on this delicious wine. Just a baby, but trying to get a feel for the vintage as others cellar. Exuding Kaffir lime with a myriad of candied citrus notes, green pear, and slate. This definitely needs time to show it’s true depth, but was very tasty at this early stage.
