Aromatically rich nose with peach, lime, apricot and candied orange peel dominant. Medium sweet with very good aroma replays, plus focused acidity bringing balance. This medium bodied wine has a charming and complex finish. (VINTAGES panel, April 2012)

Moderately sweet. Hints of apricots. Very nice, and reasonably priced. Tasted October 2012.

This wine hits all the right notes but somehow disappoints. Don't get me wrong, it's a tasty wine, but it's just a little too sweet and just a little too light on acidity to back up the sweetness. The Schloss Reinhartshausen Erbacher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese 2005 is a much better value for my money. Tasted October 2012.

Pleaseantly enjoy this ripe fruit aromatic Riesling with a Spicey Thai dish. This wine has a medium plus body with a mandarin, asian pear and pineapple flavour on the palate. Medium minus acidity has just enough to spark the tastebuds to enhance the flavours to lengthy finsih. Tasted November 2012

Much sweeter than I expected for a Spatlese, but excellent wine with a great depth and finish. Tasted March 2013.
