Wine Spectator"Smart Buy". A savory style, with decadent notes of dried peach, glazed apricot and cherry tart that feature some smoky accents. Hints of slate, sea salt and white pepper show on the complex finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateFermented in stainless steel and tasted from the Magnum (AP #3), the 2014 Wiltinger Alte Reben offers a lovely, clear, bright and flinty bouquet with fascinating lavender aromas. This is a typical Riesling from Wiltingen, very precise and focused on the nose. This is a very delicate, filigreed, lean and elegant Riesling of great purity and intensity. The finish reveals a nice tension and drinkability. This is a classic Saar respectively Wiltingen Riesling in the leaner and lighter style, with a finesse-full and very elegant fruit intensity.
Wine EnthusiastDespite a tropical nose, reminiscent of sun-ripened pineapple, this off-dry Riesling is cutting and crisp, full of tart nectarine and apricot flavors. It's not a richly concentrated wine, but elegant and brisk. The finish is moderately long, ending on delicate blossom tone.
