Wine Advocate: “The 2017 Saarburger Rausch Riesling Spätlese (AP #6) offers a beautifully fine Riesling bouquet with slate, honey and raisin aromas. What a gorgeous mix of purity, precision and richness! Lush and highly delicate on the palate, this is a gorgeous Spätlese with great elegance and finesse. The wine is intense and tight but long and complex with endless minerals. Tasted as a sample in March 2018.” 95-96/100 pts

Jamessuckling.com: “Beautiful apricot and lemon nose. A stunning balance of power and vibrancy on the palate, which leads to that whiplash finish that’s so fresh it could wake the dead. You can measure the aging potential of this in decades, but it’s already stunning.” 95-100

Mosel Fine Wines (Jean Fisch & David Rayer): “The 2017er Saarburger Rausch Spätlese was made from fruit harvested at well above 95° Oechsle. It develops the full intense presence of an Auslese as delicately creamy scents of pear, quince and exotic fruits including pineapple, coconut, star fruit and melon emerge from the glass. An apricot-infused side comes through on the palate which adds to the intensely creamy presence. Some firm acidity then cleanses the palate towards the finish, making for a truly Spätlese feel in the after-taste. This is a beautifully balanced yet intense wine in the making. 2027-2042” 93/100 pts
