95 points Fine Wine Review: "The Graacher Himmelreich Auslese is crisper on the palate than the Badstube with spiciness and some minerality and again the lightness of the vintage. (#138; 2013)"

94 points Wine Spectator: "A savory and delicate style, with well-integrated passion fruit, apple compote and Key lime pie flavors. Zesty acidity and notes of chive and green herbs give this plenty of snap. Candied mango notes linger on the plush finish. Drink now through 2034. (2/28/13)"

92 points Joel B. Payne (Vinous): "Pale golden yellow. Lively aromas of peach pit, honeysuckle and candied lemon. Bright and spicy, but with a velvety, creamy texture to its plush papaya fruit. Herbal essences heighten the pleasingly ripe, supple finish. Not a showy wine but a lovely auslese. (Jan 2013)"

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Crushed stone and smoke mingle with luscious stonefruit and crisp, green herb on this multifaceted auslese. Each sip reveals a different dimension of fruit, earth or flora, all against a backdrop of honey and acid. A lovely wine to sip and contemplate through a long, meandering finish. Alcohol 7.5%. (Feb 2014)"
