Professional reviews:

James Suckling: “The embryonic, apricot-skin and passion-fruit nose is already very subtle. Dangerous vitality, great structure and enormous minerality at the very long, racy finish. Set for release in 2021.” 97/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (David Rayer & Jean Fisch): “The 2017er Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Spätlese Trocken R (to be released in 2021, i.e. later this year) only gradually reveals its most exquisite nose of herbs, thyme, tar, dried fruits, yellow peach, and candied grapefruit, all enhanced with a stunningly refreshing touch of mint with further airing. The wine develops great presence and a nice sense of grip on the gorgeously engaging palate driven by ripe acidity, spices, salty elements, grapefruit, and citrusy elements. It proves gorgeously focused, fully dry, and youthful in the racy and hugely appealing finish. This little jewel of a dry Riesling still needs many years to fully shine. But the potential is truly immense here. What a great success in the making! 2027-2047” 95+/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “The 2017 Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Spätlese trocken R offers a very clear, intense, fine, fresh and elegant bouquet with coolish and herbal/floral notes of crushed limestone rocks and some dashes of lemon juice. Lush and intense on the tightly woven yet silky/velvety palate, this is a full-bodied yet tight, tensioned, thoroughly mineral and persistently salty Spätlese that develops enormous length and exciting complexity. A great wine with 13.5% alcohol, melting away in a sea of crushed stones. This has a really exciting combination of power, complexity, mineral freshness and finesse.” 95/100 pts
