97 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "At once ripe and generous at the front, yet austere and radical at the finish, this is a super-straight and mineral wine that needs some time to give its best. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink in 2019. (9/19/18)"

95 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Decanter): "Gravelly, sandy soil makes for subtle but concentrated citrus flavours in the Ganz Horn site. A coolness emanates from the glass as the nose is gentle and shows subtle hints of citrus. The mouthfeel is lacy, with zesty lemon and a grounded, dancing dryness pervaded by limpid acidity. This is slender and sinuous and hooks you with its citrus charm. Drinking Window: 2020-2050. (Aug 2018)"

94 points David Schildknecht (Vinous): "White peach, mirabelle, zesty lemon and earthy winter squash emanate from the glass, then contribute satisfying layering and interaction on a sappy, silken, glycerol-rich palate. Nutty piquancy and black tea smokiness add further complexity on a finish of nearly implacable grip combined with transparency to detail. This is a bit more austere and less mouthwatering than most of the Rebholz vintage 2017 dry Rieslings, but there is no mistaking its multifaceted, authoritative statement. Drink: 2019-2029. (Mar 2019)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$80 list] Very well put together, but could use a few more years to fully harmonize. Powerful acidity takes over the citrus and orchard fruit flavors. A bit hard to understand now, but orange oil and quince accents emerge with air, while star anise, mineral and spice details add to the charm. Best from 2023 through 2032. 550 cases made, 24 cases imported. (7/31/19)"
