Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht): “A pungent, bittersweet nose of orange and lime zest; diverse herbs; apricot and its cyanic kernel; plus passion fruit and hazelnut as if borrowed from Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc render Wagner’s 2008 Siefersheimer Heerkretz Riesling Grosses Gewachs intriguing and alluring from the outset. Smoky pungency wafts throughout, and the citrus and apricot are tinged on the palate with sharp spices, a hint of espresso, and saline minerality. There seems to have been both a touch of botrytis (though Wagner denies that there could have been much) along with the concentration of acids and phenols that comes from spontaneous desiccation of berries. Salt and citrus oil lend invigoration and tactile bite to a gripping finish that at the same time remains infectiously juicy. The contrast between this wine’s cooling herbal and warmly spicy aspects is almost magically mediated by luscious citrus and pronouncedly salty mineral notes. A bottle that had been open for several days was even more impressive than the freshly-opened one. Count on this being worth following for 12-15 years.” 93/100 pts
