    January 16, 2017 - Pineapple, peach, lemon and a hint of petrol. Good sweet to acid balance. Full weight and texture. Went well with a spicy pork shoulder with ginger, garlic and soy.

    September 15, 2016 - Acidity and sweetness play off each other. Apple, lemon, and pineapple dance on the tongue. Nice foil to a slightly spicy ginger sesame salmon over quinoa.

    April 22, 2015 - Dinner with Gavin at Bistrode: AP #26. Spice, lemon, mineral and pear. Fantastic palate balance, light on its feet but has great depth to it already. Young but super lovely.

    January 30, 2015 - Not much evolution since I last had this in 2010, a bit more integrated perhaps but still fairly primary. Super nose with lemon zest wild yeast and a bready note. Great Apple and citrus mix with a tough of that yeast. Spatlese sweetness but good acidity typical of the vintage. Lovely, classic wine.

    November 30, 2013 - Useful to be able to check into a bottle, but this is really not a wine to be opened right now. It's all about sugary sweetness, with the fruit and mineral flavours very reticent and not emerging even with some time in the glass and vigorous swirling.
