    July 13, 2021 - Really good, especially on day 2. Great acidity for the vintage, well balanced RS, very enjoyable. Will be even better in a few years.

    February 27, 2021 - First tasting of the 2018s. I found this (unknown to me) producer for a reasonable price and was intrigued. Verdict is consistent with prior reviews: very nice but will need time for sure. Displays a pale yellow straw color out of the bottle with low viscosity. Nose is very nice - densely packed with lots of fruit, candied lemon, baking spices, and a hint of burnt match. Palate is great - nicer weight than I was expecting - but at this stage, the wine is just simply too fruity. Even though the acidity was just medium, I really think this needs to lay down for at least 5 yrs to integrate well. I know that young spatlese border on dessert wine but I don't think that's what this is meant be. A fully mature version of this will offer more complex, perhaps even savory, elements and almost definitely merit a higher score.

    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.
