94+ points Fine Wine Review: "The Norheimer Kirschheck Spätlese is entirely on slate soils. It features a nose that is beautiful for its pure floral and mineral elements. The mouth is nervy, pure, and balanced with green apple and mineral flavors, enlivening acidity, a crystalline quality, and excellent length. 8.5% stated alcohol. (Issue #138; 2013)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "Very minerally and creamy, with plush flavors of ripe apricot, pear and spice. Enticing mint and white cherry notes linger with ginger. The lively finish features chive and candied basil accents. Drink now through 2028. 66 cases imported. (2/28/13)"

93 points Wine & Spirits: "[$40 list] Four days after opening, this wine was still going strong, plush enough to match the fat gilding a slice of smoked duck breast and direct enough to cut right through it. Its mouthwatering minerality is as smooth as the slate in this vineyard, with light herbal notes that give extra lift to the cherry pit and peach flesh flavor. (Dec 2012)"

92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2011 Kirschheck Spätlese is another absolute classic in the making. The very pure and lively nose delivers a fine blend of white cherries, white peach, slate, petrol, spring flowers and bee pollen. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and beautifully balanced, with zest acidity, a lovely core of fruit, fine focus and a very long, very minerally finish. This is light on its feet as the best vintages of Kirschheck often can be, but with beautiful purity and depth in the mid-palate. Again, a very classically-sized Spätlese. 2012-2030+. (Mar/Apr 2012)"
