This is a great buy! It’s hard imagine so much complexity, depth and maturity for $17? It has a very generous nose of...

This is a lovely wine with all the lime, floral, petrol, mineral and spicy notes in place, with peach flavours added to these in the mouth and on the finish. Fantastic value!
A year later, and nothing changes--maybe a bit more petrol maturity. Still lovely

This is bang-on Mosel riesling. Classic nose of lime, pear, petrol, and a bit of spice (these notes persist on the palate). Light bodied, it's incredibly well balanced with the sweetness matching perfectly with the beautiful acidity. To top it off, it has a lovely, long finish. A perfect wine to crush (8% alcohol) on one of the hottest days of the year. Tasted July 2013

Still holding on. Essence is light and quaffable now, some extra petrol complexity from ageing but not the expected honey notes. Long and very enjoyable
