95The Wine Advocate

...smells beautifully of fresh lemon and lime, pungent hedge flowers and herbs... ...has a clarity and class all its own. Citrus, yellow plum, distilled red fruits, almond extract, flowers and herbs billow across the palate...

95Vinous / IWC

...vibrancy and finesse to the wine's crystal-clear fruit expression...

92Wine Spectator

A big, lush Riesling, with concentrated flavors of peach, Fuji apple and spice. This also shows hints of fig, with a long finish featuring plenty of cream and mineral notes.
