“what makes this dry riesling so amazing is the glacial-water feel to its fresh side. With every swirl of the glass, more spice emerges from the abyss. Somehow, the body of the wine seems to give it almost no weight and it wafts over your palate like a piece of silk blown in the wind”

Stuart Pigott (Jamessuckling.com): “Here, you really have to ask yourself how a peach could be more perfect than this?” And what makes this dry riesling so amazing is the glacial-water feel to its fresh side. With every swirl of the glass, more spice emerges from the abyss. Somehow, the body of the wine seems to give it almost no weight and it wafts over your palate like a piece of silk blown in the wind.” 100/100 pts

Decanter: “Funky, flinty, smoky reduction is full of promise on the nose. The palate holds pepper and grapefruit zestiness. The concentration has a lovely, pithy edge and tingles with vivid citrus brightness. There is a cool, profound core of freshness. Daniel Wagner time and again crafts compelling, salty Rieslings in his remote but geologically fascinating corner of Rheinhessen. The south-facing Heerkretz site is of rhyolite and the wine has all the spice to prove it. Drinking Window 2025 – 2050” 97/100 pts
