2015 Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2015 Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale is a more complex, rounded, layered Auslese that takes air to show at its best. Beautiful notes of dried hay, crushed rocks, and subtle petrol are nicely balanced by plenty of honeyed peach and orchard fruits on the nose. With plenty of sweetness, a clean, layered texture, good concentration, and a great finish, it’s well worth seeking out."

2016 Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale - 91 PTS - CELLAR SELECTION - WE

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Sun-kissed yellow cherry and mango notes are juxtaposed by struck flint, salt and slate in this spry yet powerfully fruity Riesling. The midpalate is sweet and spicy yet intensely mineral, reverberating through a long, stony finish. Drinks well already but likely to improve from 2021."

2017 Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale - 93 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"I loved the 2015, and the 2017 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale is even better, offering a lush, rich, yet still vibrant style as well as gorgeous notes of honeyed nectarines, candied orange, peach, and exotic flowers. It packs plenty of sweetness and is medium to full-bodied, with solid acidity and a kiss of petrol and mineral nuances keeping it lively and fresh."

2017 Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale -17/20 - JR

jancis robinson logo"The ‘Caldo Infernale’ is the crowning glory of Gessingers’ noble sweet wines. Although it’s from the hottest spot of their Sonnenuhr vineyard, it still manages to present its sweet citrus fruit content with delightful charm rather than unctuous concentration. Some Auslesen are made for sipping, this one is made for drinking."
