92-93 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2016 Kammern Ried Gaisberg 1ÖTW Riesling is very clear, precise, fresh and smoky on the nose, indicating crystalline aromas of white and concentrated white stone and fresh citrus fruits intermixed with crushed stone flavors. Round, lush, pure and piquant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, gorgeously juicy, finessed and elegant Gaisberg with complexity, good concentration, fine tannins, tension and lingering salinity. Tasted as a sample in July 2017. Drink 2022-2032." (Aug 2017)

90 points James Suckling: "Quite a big, ripe wine for this site. Plenty of power at the long crisp finish, but lacks the subtlety and elegance needed for a higher score. Drink now." (10/1/17)

++ Terry Theise: "For me the class of the ’16 Hiedler Rieslings -- a Heiligenstein was in some trough, though the 'cannabis' aroma Ludwig Jr. noted was certainly 'interesting...' But this Gaisberg is a riot of white flowers and honeysuckle, leading into a juicy minty palate, replete with mineral as a side-note in a stream of lavish yet focused fruit; Asian pear, mirabelle, strawberry. You can call it exquisite; I won’t argue."
