    Wine Enthusiast:  "A hint of smoke and a touch of earth precede the fresh lemon notes of the nose.  The dry palate, with its vivid impression of very pure, bright and incisive lemon freshness, still seems tightly wound.  There is something brooding and alive about this—it can be felt below the surface, disquieting but promising.  This has barely started on its journey and will take a while to develop fully but it's all already there, dormant and ready to unfurl with a little more bottle age.  The pure, long and intense finish is a delicious promise. Drink 2017–2037."  Dec 2017

    James Suckling:  "A beautiful and clean wine with flowers, honey dew and gun flint.  Medium body, bright acidity and flint undertones. Lots of aniseed, clove and burning-spice flavors here, too.  So beautiful.  Drink now or hold.  Lots of potential here."         Dec 2016

    Winery:  "Great classic Riesling which starts to show its promises but which will gain in complexity for 8 years or more.  Its minerality and long complex aftertaste will make it the ideal partner to noble fish or seafood dishes.  

    Excellent maturity in a fair size crop with soft acidity. Wines already charming, easy to approach and early to drink soon after bottling."
