wine enthusiast 90 pts"Succulent lemon, yellow pear and grapefruit extend from nose to finish in this forward yet elegantly mineral Spätlese. It's medium-sweet in style and ringed by a touch of caramelized sugar but finishes refreshingly dry. Enjoy now–2022. - Anna LEE C. IIJIMA"

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Delicate hints of clay and crushed earth lend savory complexity to this otherwise wildly fruity spätlese. It's unctuously ripe offering loads of summery peach and nectarine flavors but balanced by a spine tingling lemon-lime finish. Drink now through 2025."

wine enthusiast 92 pts"While shades of slate and saffron lend complexity and nuance, this semisweet wine is more a showcase of sumptuous yellow peach and pear flavors. Its high-toned acidity and delicate, lacy mouthfeel make it irresistibly gulpable."
