''This impressive young Germany riesling is tremendously intense and powerful, but also refined. The fragrance reminds of stone fruits both fresh and poached, with a steely touch and a dry but not austere balance. Great persistence.'' 96 Points, Huon Hooke
''Thrilling nervous tension abounds in this vibrant, juicy wine full of pink grapefruit, lime and honeydew flavors. It's a forward, lip-smacking wine yet taut and bracing in acidity. The finish is long and intensely steely. Lovely already but should improve through 2023.'' 93 Points, Anna Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
''A great dry Riesling for a very friendly price that not only has beautiful nectarine and citrus fruit, but also a minerally acidity and crystalline purity.'' 92 Points, James Suckling
