Lush and round on the palate, this is a highly delicate and salty-piquant Riesling Auslese with gorgeous tropical fruit aromas. The finish is so fine and tensioned, full of juicy Riesling fruit, salt and very fine minerals. A gorgeous wine.”

Wine Advocate: “The 2017 Saarburger Rausch Riesling Auslese (AP #5) is even more intense on the nose than the gorgeous Spätlese (AP #5). Raisin and grapefruit aromas on the nose intermix with very fine (and refreshing) slate aromas (I am thinking of weathered red slate, but this is the Rausch, and red is only a shade of gray here). Lush and round on the palate, this is a highly delicate and salty-piquant Riesling Auslese with gorgeous tropical fruit aromas. The finish is so fine and tensioned, full of juicy Riesling fruit, salt and very fine minerals. A gorgeous wine. Tasted as a sample in March 2018. Drink: 2020-2050” 96-97/100 pts

Jamessuckling.com: “Extremely clean in spite of the creaminess and a delicate touch of sweetness. Great structure and balance. The intensity is only showing its hand at the bold and breathtaking finish. Drink or hold.” 95/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (Jean Fisch & David Rayer): “The 2017er Saarburger Rausch Auslese was made from fruit harvested at almost 100° Oechsle. It exhibits a great exotic nose made of under-ripe pineapple, coconut, star fruit, chamomile and slate. A firm kick of acidity lifts up the gorgeously creamy feel on the palate and makes for a stunningly vibrant and mouthwatering finish. This is a truly remarkable “Feine Auslese” in the making. 2027-2042” 94/100 pts
