    October 25, 2020 - This wine has changed dramatically over the last 5yrs from being a linear crystalline dry Riesling to being incredibly rich and full of tropical fruit. It’s not entirely to my taste but those who like tropical fruit driven powerful Riesling’s will really enjoy this. Well suited to spicy Asian food. It’s got years ahead of it I would say and I’ll leave my remaining bottles to settle down a bit.

    June 12, 2020 - Golden yellow. Apricot, nectarine, and peach fruit. Dry, but not austere. There is enough residual sugar to allow this to play nicely with food with a bit of spice. Good now.

    September 17, 2019 - Horizontal tasting of the27 best 2009 German Dry Rieslings; 9/16/2019-9/26/2019 (Concept Resling 14.09.2019): semiblind
    A bit lactic nose, then Tropical fruits and lime. A touch too broad , representative for the vintage, missing the precision in the finish. I preferred the Schäfer-Fröhlich same site. 92-93

    July 5, 2018 - Yellow with a green tint, very healthy colour

    White peach and floral tones on the nose - no petroleum whatsoever,

    Quite rich on the palate, but good acidity and minerality with an excellent length. Good fruit with a spicy finish.

    An excellent GG from a very good and consistant producer
