    November 16, 2020 - Very good riesling

    October 9, 2020 - The palate is dominated by flavors of white fruits, peach, and lime with a pronounced minerality. Lightweight and with only moderate sweetness. In fact, this shows far lighter/less sweet than most Kabinetts. While not as thrilling as the Alte Reben Kabinett, this is still a fine drink in its own right.

    Saved a glass under cork in the refrigerator for 4 days. The wine had picked up considerable weight and while not large scaled by any means, it is more mouth filling, the acidity is more integrated and the fruit has turned from white to white and yellow.

    June 6, 2020 - Ap 14. Lys strågul. Ren med reduktiv på duft. Heftig kons i munn av hvit sødmefull frukt. Stor konsentrasjon og heftig syre. Også her forsvinner sødmen mye i friskheten. Sinnsykt ren og god vin.

    February 14, 2020 - Staff recommendation, as clerk said all the other sales people were surprised how good this wine was. Clerk stated it was more on the dry side, then I pointed out but this is 8.5% alcohol, that should be on the sweet side, and he replied yes but it doesn't show it. He was correct. Wine was very nice, well balanced, and I got peach a just a hint of grapefruit, but it wasn't overly sweet either. Noticed the Mosel Report reviews like this wine also. Shared with spouse who did not prefer this wine, don't know why, but she liked it better second day, as more sweetness appeared. To my mind a wine that changes over few days indicates aging potential, especially if wine on the young side. Should age a bit, am tempted to purchase again to find out.

    June 4, 2019 - [14 19] ‘Forter Ternesen’. Expressive, generous nose with tropical fruit, stone fruit, herbal and floral notes. Good weight and concentration on the palate, fine mineral thread, good intensity. Fresh and lively finish. Very fine. 91-92+
