    November 15, 2017 - Riesling night at HaiSous (Chicago, IL): #01-09, 10.5% abv. This wine always overdelivers at the QbA level. There's a little touch of reduction or sponti or what have you on the nose, but this is mostly a story of crystalline white fruit and acidity. Bright and cheerful and bursting with energy right now. Certainly I would be willing to age these, but really, they're drinking amazingly well.

    January 14, 2016 - An excellent QbA, though perhaps not the best QPR. Nice minerality, not particularly sweet. Purchased to cellar for some time.

    July 15, 2015 - Absolutely gorgeous wine. The perfect balance between RS and fruit/acid. Balanced. Throwing soem COs and tartaric acid on the cork. Hung beautifully. Lemon peel, honeydew, melon, apricot, petrol, honeycuckle, apples, lime pith. Absolutely ripping wine.

    April 20, 2015 - Just a ordinary tasting (Chris Home): Nose: Very fresh & clean nose. Lots of white peach, pineapple and a "slate" component.
    Palate: Appeals very young with a great mineral touch on the mid-palate. Juicy acidity. Lean structure. Amazing how this QbA can age. Great showing.

    April 20, 2015 - Very refreshing, lean and "cool" after a couple of very dense wines. Beautiful acid. Was a re-import from Portugal :-).
