wine enthusiast 88 pts"Dusty notes of bramble and dried herbs on the nose contrast an intensely fruity palate that bursts of sunny white peach, apricot and white grapefruit flavors. Medium sweet and light on its feet, it's a juicy but nuanced wine to enjoy now. - Anna LEE C. IIJIMA”

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Opulent tropical fruit and florals perfume this decadently ripe yet bracing wine. It's intensely fruity and juicy yet spine tingling with acidity. Blossom and honey notes leave a lingering, pleasantly viscous trail of sweetness on the palate. Delightful now but likely to hold through 2022.”

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A step up, the 2015 Bernkasteler Graben Riesling Spätlese offer more complexity in its sugared peach, honeyed minerality, and subtle petrol aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, with bright acidity, it’s a winner as well as about as easy-drinking as it gets.”
