96 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Ried Grassnitzberg Sauvignon Blanc is sometimes quite reductive and needs a lot of air, but it is precise, deep and clear. A second bottle was far better and a clearer Grassnitzberg representative, with a deep, cool and intensely fruity nose with mango notes and fine, smoky spice. Complex, elegant and fine on the palate, this is a full-bodied, juicy, ripe, savory, salty and grippy Sauvignon from Grassnitzberg that is tartly bitter on the finish and needs plenty of time to shine. The 2019 is not at all for young-wine or brand drinkers, but for collectors and connoisseurs of demanding wines. This is a tightly knit, taut, big wine that needs around 10 years before its journey really begins. 13% stated alcohol. Glass stopper. Tasted in Grafenegg in September 2021. Drink: 2030-2050. (Dec 2021)"

94 points Falstaff: "Light yellow-green, silver reflections. Delicate herbal spices, a hint of pineapple and gooseberries, fresh orange zest, dark mineral notes. Juicy, white peach, lively structure, mineral-lemony finish, fine salty nuances, chalky touch, very lively style that encourages drinking. (7/9/21)"

93 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Smoky and flinty nose and, as it aerates, ever more grapefruit, then hay and seaweed. Concentrated with lively acidity and excellent minerality at the long, invigorating finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Glass stopper. (10/7/21)"
