90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2013
(12% alcohol; 3.0 pH; 16.6 g/l r.s.): Pale, green-tinged yellow with CO2 in suspension. Lively aromas of lime peel, white peach, licorice and spring flowers are complicated by brown spices. Grapefruit and white peach flavors combined with bracing acidity and the firming effect of CO2 keep this intense riesling considerably drier than the numbers suggest; tastes like a very cool fermentation. Still a bit unyielding: give this wine a good aeration to dissipate the gas if you plan to open a bottle any time soon. At this level of quality, this is very reasonably priced.
