94 points James Suckling: "Still a little undeveloped on the nose with some peach showing, but on the palate this has serious concentration and power for the moderate alcohol level. A very long, spicy finish. Better from 2018. Made from biodynamically-grown grapes. Screw cap. (10/1/17)"

93 points David Schildknecht (Vinous): "Honeysuckle and lily-of-the-valley persists inner-mouth to the accompaniment of ripe pear, quince and Persian melon. Scents and crunch of snap pea remind that this is Grüner Veltliner after all, not Riesling, and offer welcome counterpoint to the wine’s silkiness of texture and lusciousness of fruit. The same can be said of crushed stone, iodine, and acupuncture-like impingements of pepper, cress and nettle in a focused and superbly-sustained finish mouthwateringly suffused with marine minerality. Drink: 2018-2027. (Oct 2018)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "[$45 list] Piercing aromas of freesia, black currant and grapefruit are the highlights of this delicate yet intensely flavored white. Harmonious and long, with citrus and mineral accents on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 25 cases imported. (2018)"
