Professional reviews:

Stuart Pigott (jamessuckling.com): “The wines of Rheinhessen are supposed to be broad and generous, but this is a masterpiece of delicacy and subtlety. Still rather closed in the nose, where only the smoky aspect of the wine is showing. However, on the palate there’s a cascade of stone-fruit, citrus and mineral notes right through the super-long finish. From organically grown grapes.” 97/100 pts

Decanter: “The elevated Heerkretz site on heterogeneous rhyolite and melaphyre soils has both windy parcels and suntraps, but the wine is always serene. The nose is restrained, but plenty of air allows some zesty lemon to shine through. Already there is something still and solid in this wine which quietly convinces with supple but lithe fluidity. Pure poise and precision will become even clearer with age. An underrated but absolute Rheinhessen star” 95/100 pts

Vinous: “White peach, apple and lime are accented by their pits and pits as well as by raw almond on an enticing nose highly reminiscent of that exhibited by the corresponding 2016. Scents of Ceylon tea and spring beauty (Claytonia) add inner-mouth allure. The feel is flatteringly silken, notwithstanding the persistence of stimulating piquancy. Infectious juiciness, along with an invigoratingly tactile, active sense of crystalline stony impingement, dramatically sets this wine’s vibrant, bell-clear finish apart from that of its Höllberg sibling.” 94/100 pts
