94Wine Enthusiast

Savory tones of crushed slate, smoke and honeycomb are brightened by layers of concentrated peach and apricot in this delicately textured yet penetrating spätlese. It's sweet and ripe yet steely and filigreed, with a reverberating backbone of acidity.

93+ The Wine Advocate

It does display perfectly ripe Spätlese fruit and a touch of over-ripeness... The attack on the palate is quite racy, leading the wine immediately to a crisp, crunchy, very clear, lush and finessed finish with good grip and tension.

93Vinous / IWC

Scents of honeydew, kiwi and Persian melon set the themes for a lushly fruited palate performance. A glossy feel enhances the sense of richness and lushness, which is beautifully counterposed against the wine’s alcoholic levity and animation. Piquant, tart crunch of kiwi seeds and brightness of lime lend invigoration to a vibrantly sustained and mouthwateringly saline finish.

93James Suckling

Tons of herbs and quite some yeast on the nose. The latter is the result of minimal handling in the cellar. Succulent and well-structured with a very clean, crisp finish.

91Wine Spectator

Very pure, but with intense acidity redolent of grapefruit giving zip to the nectarine, white peach and lemon oil notes. Asian spice and elderflower flavors mark the long, mouthwatering finish.

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Herbal, box-leaf aromatics, but the palate is so much more charming! Intense peachiness and really pretty bite of grapefruit pith bitterness. Fantastic length and vibrant angle-grinding structure.


Germany, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer is Germany’s most prestigious wine region and it is comprised of the vineyards surrounding the Mosel River and its tributaries, the Saar and Ruwer. This region is the northernmost of Germany’s primary viticultural areas, located on the western edge of Germany just above the northeast corner of France. Internationally Mosel Rieslings are considered among the finest white wines in the world. In Germany and elsewhere, the region’s name is often shortened simply to Mosel, and in fact since 2007 Mosel has been the formal name of the region for viticultural purposes. The references to Saar and Ruwer were dropped for ease of marketing. The distinctively crisp, mineral tasting, acidic Rieslings produced in Mosel are attributed partly to the region’s slate soils and extremely vertiginous vineyards. Many vineyards are on 60 to 80 percent cent inclines along the three rivers. Riesling grapes represent more than half of all the grapes grown in Mosel, followed by Muller-Thurgau, a white wine grape related to Riesling, and Elbling, an indigenous white wine grape often used for sparkling wines.


White Wine, Riesling, Spätlese

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
