Professional reviews:

Wine Advocate (review by David Schildknecht):  “Kunstler’s 2008 Hochheimer Holle Riesling trocken Gold Capsule – from 50 year old vines – is marginally lower in alcohol than the corresponding Erstes Gewachs, and whether or not that is at all critical, we have here a silken, almost creamy, refined texture; primary juiciness; persistent purity of sweetly ripe fruit (white peach and yellow plum); and transparency to nut oils, chalk, salt, and citrus rind in the finish that make for an exceptionally expressive and elegant Riesling I would expect to be worth following for a dozen or more years. Drink 2010 – 2022” 92/100 pts

Vinous: “Rich floral aroma over apricot pit, lemon zest and sweet herbs. The palate offers intense tropical fruit flavors with a complex acidic drive that gives the wine a juicy crispness. A touch closed, but offers excellent potential.” 92/100 pts
