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."
