94-96(+) points Stephen Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Nierstein Hipping Riesling GG is pure and flinty on the elegant, slatey, flinty nose that is already pretty open, even though I am tasting this wine as a barrel sample. On the palate, it is creamy textured, salty-piquant and persistent, with fine tannins, lingering salinity and stimulating finesse. It is still quite reductive, though, but promising. Tasted in April 2020. Drink: 2024-2040. (Aug 2020)"

95 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Some funk, but a lot more ripe peach and pineapple. Both generous and crisp with a great balance of freshness and full body, supported by some nice, positive tannins. Long, powerful finish with a real mineral kick to it. Great potential. Drink or hold. (9/16/20)"

94 points Mosel Fine Wines: " AP: 58 20. The 2019er Hipping, as it is referred to on the consumer label, offers a quite captivating and refined nose of pear, spices, pineapple, almond, a hint of toffee, hay, candied grapefruit, and smoke. The wine proves juicy and ripe side on the palate driven by yellow and slightly honeyed fruits. A superbly zesty side then kicks in and adds grip and energy to the experience. The finish is beautifully intense, powerful, fully dry, spicy, and zesty. This intense and still rather compact expression of dry Riesling will need quite a few years to round off its racy side in the after-taste and on the ripe palate. 2025-2034. (Oct 2020)"
