- 96 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "This is a very dramatic super-racy and intensely mineral wine that bowls you over, at least if you don't have a problem with the naturally high acidity of the Riesling grape in a cool northerly climate. Whiplash finish that's full of citrus, herbal and stony notes. Vintages beginning with the great 1993 demonstrate how this wine has decades of ageing potential!"
- 93 Punkte WINE ETHUSIAST: "Lean and mineral, this dry medium-bodied Riesling offers tart lemon and tangerine flavors edged in steel. While restrained in ripeness and fruit, tones of green-melon rind and crisp fennel are invigorating and fresh. It's a young taut wine still that should build depth and texture with age. Hold till 2021."
- 93 Punkte WINESPECTATOR: "Pure and beautifully balanced, this is redolent of lemon oil and quince, with shadings of sweet spice and mint. Not shy in acidity, which seems intense at first, but interacts nicely with the concentrated flavors and imparts longevity to this electric expression. Best from 2020 through 2029. 50 cases made."
- 91 Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "Wet stone, wood smoke, zesty fresh lemon and pungent, salt-tinged caper make for a highly distinctive aromatic mélange, setting the stage for an invigoratingly gripping and piquant palate performance. The feel is firm, but with greater sense of polish than exhibited by other dry wines in this collection. The finish advertises Riesling as a delivery device for mineral flavors: mouthwatering salinity, pronounced alkalinity, stony suffusion and smoldering smokiness. But there is also enough primary juiciness to refresh ? albeit juiciness of a tart, sharply citric sort."
