I don't drink much Sauternes but maybe I should. This one was smokin'! Fat, hedonistic and civilized.

Haven’t had this one in almost 2 years. Still love it. Almonds, vanilla, baking spices. Wrapped up in bright citrus acidity. Old Austrian Riesling characteristics.

From a half bottle. Had this wine more than a dozen times now, and it NEVER lets me down. Fantastic value and perfect cellar material.

Bouquet of faint new plastic garden hose. In a good way. In some way it reminded me of aspects of older Wachau Riesling. Deep reddish pink rosé colouring. Tea, honey, apricot, mint, caramel, spices, those waxy candies when you were a kid... superb.
