RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

...aristocratic bouquet of coolish, flinty slate and citrus perfume along with concentrated Riesling flavors. There is great complexity and expression here! On the palate, this wine is highly elegant and its seamless, silky texture... Very salty, full of finesse and tension on the palate--this is a great, perfectly balanced Spätlese.

94Vinous / IWC

Ripe white peach and Persian melon are wreathed in honeysuckle in the nose. A luscious palate presence is enhanced by bright fresh lime, while bittersweet floral perfume and cooling green herbal essences add further allure en route to an at once luscious and dynamic not to mention prodigiously persistent finish.

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Quite rich and sweet with a big robust mouthful of fruit. Full on! Lots of ripe kiwi flavour here.
