Jancis Robinson NA FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
Appealing nose of very pure Mosel Riesling. Impressive undertow. Very juicy and precise. Featherlight. Very racy.
Wine Spectator 94 FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
This juicy and harmonious white, with a easy-drinking character, offers complex aromas hinting at violet, black currant and peach, while the flavors pick up apple and mineral notes, all capped by a long aftertaste echoing fruit, mineral and floral elements. Drink now through 2024.
Vinous - Antonio Galloni 92 FOR THE 2016 VINTAGE
• Scents and juicy generosity of mint-tinged and honeysuckle-garlanded fresh apple and black currant are allied to a polished, glossy, buoyant palate presence, leading to a lusciously sustained, delicate finish tinged with crystalline stony inflections. The sweetness here is totally supportive and entirely discreet. This is one of those Kabinetts one seems to inhale in the finish, with floral perfume and wet stone prominent, and only sheer refreshment reminds you of its fluid nature.
Wine Spectator 92 FOR THE 2016 VINTAGE
Seductive, with ??oral and mineral elements, and nectarine and custard aromas and ??avors that interchange on the vibrant frame, underscored by bright acidity. Precise and pure, with a light feel and a long, vanilla-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2025. 850 cases made.
The Wine Advocate 93 FOR THE 2016 VINTAGE
The 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett (AP 21 17) is deep, cool and flinty on the nose, pretty mineral though still a bit reductive. Round, intense and juicy, this is a densely woven Kabinett with ripe nectarine and plummy flavors as well as a tightly woven and refreshing mineral structure. The finish is pretty persistent and extremely stimulating. Compared to the Badstube, the Himmelreich is more aromatic and expressive. Tasted in March 2017.
