The nose was crisp with ripe lemony notes, followed by mineral stone and a slight herbal tones. On the palate it was refreshing with green apple acidity and a slight sweet citrus note. The finish was, at first, cheek-puckering but quickly made the mouth water with lemon zest flavors lasting for over thirty seconds. This was a fun Riesling and a good value. It has lots of potential at the dinner table and great piecing acidity that really kept it juicy and fun to drink. (89 points)

Very corny. Odd. Medium body and sweetness.

The 2005 Riesling Alte Reben is sourced from very old vines in some outstanding if largely no longer well-recognized steep slate, greywacke and quartzite sites. Suggestions of brine, fruit pits, wet stone, and grapefruit rind on the nose forecast a rather austere expression of Saar minerality. But a full, brothy richness and silky, leesy notes - more than the wine's seven grams of residual sugar - manage to assert themselves successfully on the palate, and in Austrian Riesling-like manner, this positively opens up the floodgates in its finish of citrus, pit fruits, nut oils, and of course stones. A little time to calm down from bottling should pay immediate dividends here. Wine Advocate, #167 Oct 2006, David Schildknecht
