"Delicate lemon, lime and orange blossom aromas intensify on the palate of this fresh, fruity Riesling. Just a shade off dry, its tropical pineapple and melon flavors balance neatly against brisk acidity and a steely mineral finish. Enjoy now–2022. - Anna Lee C. Iijima"

"The 2016 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling is a good effort that has a balanced, off-dry, delicious style as well as notes of honeyed minerality and quince. It’s a good value and ideal for drinking over the coming couple of years."

"Piercing quince and tangerine flavors brighten this deeply rocky, smoky wine that's full of earthy, savory complexity. Delicate and off-dry, it balances juicy citrus flavors withpert acidity. The finish is refreshingly brisk and dry."
