93 points Wine Spectator: "[$35 list] This is spicy, evoking vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon notes, with accents of apple and smoky slate. Racy and harmonious, presenting a long, expansive finish. Drink now through 2036. 150 cases imported. (3/1/15)"

92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2015 Kirschheck Spätlese is a classic example in the making, as here the filigree of the vintage is very much in evidence. The nose wafts from the glass in a very pure and classy blend of apple, white cherry, beautiful slate undertow, wild yeasts, bee pollen and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full and shows lovely inner tension, with a fine girdle of acidity, excellent focus and grip and a long, complex finish. The inherent delicacy of the Kirschheck works perfectly with the style of the vintage. 2019-2040. (Mar/Apr 2016)"

91 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2015 Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spätlese is clear, piquant and salty on the nose, with great purity and a lovely flintiness framing the ripe yellow apple and grapefruit aromas. On the palate, this is a pretty, complex and salty Spätlese with generous but delicate fruit and lingering mineral tension and salinity. Grown on the same soil as the Leistenberg Kabinett (grey slate) but from a fully south-facing site, this is a perfect Spätlese terroir. Although this wine has just 9% alcohol, it is intense and complex and has 65 grams of residual sugar. It is a really full-bodied Riesling. (Dec 2016)"
