Wijndomein De Slootgaert
Our rating: 6/10
A youthful, green wine with a fresh and fruity character. The palate consists of yellow apples, lemon, some green vegetables and notes of white pepper and bitter almond in its finish. When the wine is left open to breath for a few hours, it opens up and shows a clear improvement in aroma and flavour intensity. Aromas of more ripened yellow apples and hints of white pepper and almonds appear. Definitely not a high flyer, however, a wine with many faces that will show you the different parts of its character during the evening.

Colonjes
Our rating: 7.5/10
Not overly complex or exciting but well made, with a good balance between acidity and fruit. The flavor and aroma palates are quite similar, showing a combination of green fruit and vegetal tones of lemon, green apples and gooseberries in combination with grass, green bell-pepper and asparagus. Nice to combine with cold, light dishes, a salad or asparagus.

Hoeve Nekum
Our rating: 8.5/10
Although the wine is already 4 years old, the aromas and flavors of developed wines are not really present. In the nose, the wine shows fine aromas of apple, elder flower, mango, grapefruit, melon, combined with some light mineral tones. But the taste is really a glass full of ripe, yellow fruits. We taste flavours of mandarin, mango, passion fruit and elder flower. The wine has a very nice balance and beautiful, soft acids where sweet and sour are well integrated. A beautiful, full Riesling!

Domein Tussen Rug en Rijn
Our rating: 7.5/10
A gold coloured, off-dry wine with a rich aroma palate of tropical fruits, caramel, toast and nuts and quite intense flavours of honey and ripened, caramelized tropical fruits (pineapple, apricot). A fine wine to combine with paté, foie gras or a rich salad with grilled nectarins, goat cheese, walnuts and honey.

Apostelhoeve
Our rating: 8/10
This 2018 Riesling is an exciting wine, in which a lot is happening! In the nose, yellow apples and melon are complemented with typical developing aromas. We taste flavours of mandarin, and yellow apple, a steely and stony taste, combined with typical developing Riesling flavour of petrol. The wine is tight and deep, with a nice balance between fruit and acidity. A typical Riesling!

Apostelhoeve
Our rating: 8/10
The wine is very fresh with sweet fruits in the glass. A pronounced aroma of ripe yellow and tropical fruit, perfume and floral tones is followed by flavours of lemon, grapefruit, pear, peach gooseberries. A subtle hint of pepper gives the wine an exciting twist. It is a nice, warm wine. It is, however, a bit one- dimensional. Although the wine is well made and has a good balance, it is not what one would call a typical Riesling. For that, the wine has too much fruit and too little minerality.
