    March 24, 2020 - We both enjoyed this bottle. Nice acidity, minerality, and a little struck match note.

    March 22, 2020 - Wife opened last night but I didn’t try. Had a glass today (day 2) and this was outstanding. Lemon zest, oily, long finish, just really pulled together.

    February 17, 2020 - Light weight, easy and delicious. Tropical fruits, lemon zest, medium to light acidity. I don’t have a lot of comparison points, but as others have said, there is much less reductive notes on this wine compared to other Goodfellow’s I have had. Even though it’s light weight, it is full of flavor.

    December 28, 2019 - Very interesting how each vintage is so different from each other. I actually get a little tropical fruit on the nose here, but the palate is energetic, with lively acidity. I've liked this particular vintage since it was released, and this is another bottle that is drinking very well.

    November 15, 2019 - Rieslingfan's note describes this well. I would have liked a little more acidity, but this was pretty solid. For me it shows better warmer, where some saline and rainwater start to show, and it feels better balanced.
