These herbal inflections add to the delightfully tingly, refreshing finish, possessed of crystalline clarity, stony mineral impingement and mouthwatering salinity. This comes as a lovely surprise given the usual expectations that “gold capsule” will signal additional ripeness or botrytis. - David Schildknecht collapse

There is great finesse and silkiness, and saltiness and piquancy in the finish. With grip and slate flavors. This Riesling has great balance. - Stephan Reinhardt collapse

Wine Spectator, June 2016
Elegant and airy, with crunchy acidity behind the lively flavors of fresh-cut Gala apple, white plum and raspberry. Ripe lime and meringue notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2038. 100 cases imported.–KM
