The combination of richness with juiciness and levity, as well as a complex array of scents and flavors including alkali, wet stone, almond, hazelnut, apple, white peach, sage, ginger, gentian and narcissus, render this a worthy exemplar of its profoundly successful vintage. Subtly waxy in feel, but refreshingly juicy, it finishes with animation and fascinating diversity. - David Schildknecht collapse

It shows a brilliant citrus color and opens with a clear, pure and mineral nose with a good concentration of fruit and crushed stones. Full-bodied, rich and elegant on the palate, this is a well balanced and complex dry Riesling Smaragd with a good grip and lingering salinity. This is a great, vibrant and well defined Riesling for long-term aging. Although it is lovely to drink today, I'd keep it for 10 to 20 years. - Stephan Reinhardt collapse
