90 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "From volcanic soils the 2015 (Estate) Riesling Trocken is lovely, pure, refined and mineral on the nose, displaying ripe white fruit aromas and crushed stone flavors. On the palate, this is a tension-filled, lovely, juicy and intense Riesling of great elegance, lightness and finesse. 'This is a typical Riesling from this part of the Nahe valley and it's far too good for an Estate Riesling,' says Helmut Dönnhoff. The grapes are from south/southeast-facing vineyards (Oberhausen, Felsenberg and Kieselberg) and ripen later, sometimes they are picked pretty late--about in the middle of the main harvest. But, there are parts that are picked in the very end. This is a gorgeous Riesling and the best Estate Riesling I have ever tasted here." (Dec 2016)

88 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The Estate Riesling from 2015 came in at a very svelte 11.9 percent alcohol and really is a lovely 'basic' bottling. The bouquet is bright and complex, offering up scents of grapefruit, a touch of white cherries, lovely, wild yeast overtones and a classy base of minerality. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full, crisp and focused, with a rock solid core, lovely backend mineral drive and fine length and grip on the vibrant finish. 2016-2030. (Mar/Apr 2016)"
