Vinous: “Sourced from Kirchspiel and to a much lesser degree from Abtserde, this pungently lime- and bruised-apple-scented offering retains considerable CO2 that enhances a sense of vivacity engendered by crunchy fresh apple, juicy, pit-inflected white peach and zesty lime. The feel is firm and palpably dense, yet low alcohol guarantees buoyancy, while the chalk- and sage-tinged finish displays striking cut and clarity. This amazing ball of energy blows past any previous installment of Limestone that I can recall. And like Keller’s generic dry Riesling, it represents around 14,000 bottles. As he pointed out, “there is typically some fruit from these sites that if turned into dry wine would be inharmonious because the acidity is too high, or I would have had to deacidify it, which is something I don’t want to do. So it’s terrific option to have the option: Kabinett or [for lots suited to dryness] Von der Fels.” 92/100 pts

The Wine Front (Gary Walsh): “Beautiful talc perfume, and maybe something like guava, ripe lime, rocks and candles, and, well, just other delightful Riesling stuff. Intense lime and green apple, chalky and slaty, good punch of crystalline acidity tussling with juicy sweetness, and an uplifting finish of perfume, precision and lip-smacking satisfaction. This is how you do a pow pow powerful off-dry Riesling.” 95/100

Jancisrobinson.com (Julia Harding MW): “From vineyards in Westhofen, mainly Kirchspiel and AbtsE. Deep and almost savoury with rocky spice as well as smoky lime finesse. Has both remarkable intensity as well as sharp-edged citrus purity. There’s sweetness but the balance is perfect with the cutting-edge freshness.”
