Very calm, smooth flavors. Would serve nicely for cooking, sweet dessert finish, or acidic meal counter balance for pallet cleansing. Definitely a good stand by to have available for all occasions. — 3 months ago

Wine 1/12 (Gemischter Satz)
Nose has pear, wild yeast fermentation, pineapple core, cold orange slice and minor apple cider.
Palate has cooked pear, mild Saison-esque notes, cold pineapple, dry minerality, peach peel, nice acidity and a medium finish.
Once again it is notable that I have made one full trip around the Sun earlier this week. We had our small, social bubble team to the house for celebrating my getting older and somewhat less flexible in advancing age...Whatever will be done when I creast 50? Well, at least it's several years until needing manage that concern.
We enjoyed well-salted Ribeyes (Kinderhook Farm - Valatie, NY, prepared 48h in advance), turning to a beautiful medium-rare after a mere 12m of grill time and smashed, small red potatoes with capers (yeah try it, don't judge me yet). None of the bottles were particularly planned as 'steak wines'; we didn't care as it really was a wine nerd-fest of grapes/regions, from Burgenland, Austria to Brittany, France. Wine and food were on individual plateaux today. This was the vom Boden Spring Experience case, expertly curated by Stephen Bitterolf, and well received by our tasting crew. — a month ago
Nice, very tasty, very 'aromatico'. It's like a moscato (moscadet, muskat, muszkat): but dry and mild. There's no difference (IMHO) between German gewurztraminer and Italian traminer. This one is floral (a rose?), citrus (mild!) with a peach. With a low acidity. — 3 months ago
Cloudy yellow with sour citrusy taste. Plenty of fizz. This really was a funky bottle. Would be delicious paired with some carnitas tacos or some very rich street food. Buying this again. — a month ago
Utterly wonderful Orange wine made from 35% Riesling, 25% Viognier, 25% Muscat Ottonel, and 15% Gewürztraminer. Unfiltered. Refreshing orange zestiness. No surprise it is now sold out. Another great wine by Mackenzie Brisbois. — 19 days ago
Lovely sweet semi sweet Riesling. — 2 months ago
This is my second review of this build from the fantastic 2017 vintage… 46% Muscat Ottonel provides sturdy viscosity￼ while 22% vermintino + 16% Viognier + 16% petit manseng energizes the acid and structure. Altogether elegant while the acid from 2 1/2 years of bottle aging is weaning a bit… It provided beautiful lime sweetness and verve when paired with our caprice salad on baguette. Opulent floral nose and elevated mouth feel make for a very distinguished build… On par with some of the finest Rieslings on the East Coast for reference. ￼￼￼ — 4 months ago
