    December 26, 2021 - Lovely poise, very austere with a ton of acidity. Distinctive aromas of nuts, and a sour citrus palate. Rich and powerful. Very nice.

    November 25, 2021 - Flinty and acidic. Expected to be more rounder based on previous consumption of Donnhoff GG. Must have been the vintage. I think this can sit for another 5 years.

    August 20, 2021 - Superb. Rich bouquet - almost Alsatian. Wonderful tension, purity and line. Interesting to see how it ages.

    January 29, 2021 - I just love this. Fresh nervous energetic and extremely dynamic zippy pulse from first pour. Settled down and fattened a little after and hour or so, but what a great journey of energetic acid and perfect fruit in a lovely dry style.

    June 19, 2020 - Dry Riesling on the rooftop (logan square, Chicago IL): Having the 13 Felsenberg right before this shows off a great contrast. Where the 13 was clearly heading into a more mature phase, this still has a lot of youthful zeal and punch with white peaches, green apples, pears, white florals, saline, crushed rocks, vanilla, and nectarines. The Medium bodied feel shows off good depth and with a lovely freshness that is extremely enjoyable along with tart, high acidity. This is a lovely and balanced younger GG Riesling. There is excellent depth across the nose and palate while still showing off the youthful nature of the wine. If one wants this to show off more maturity, another 3+ years will be needed but if primary-ness is the preferred way to go, then give this some air and enjoy.
