"Hits all the right fruit-filled notes with perfect pitch. A delicate orange blossom aroma bounces off juicy apple and tangy lemon flavors for a slightly sweet finish."
"This delicious Riesling is opulent, rich, lusciously sweet and has a long finish."
"Not much wine from this finicky grape in the most stingy of vintages, but wow. Stunning, apple butter, Chinese 5 spice, sweated carrot. All I can say is jump to grab this, and you don't have to wait a zillion years to drink it."
"92 Wine Spectator Opulent, delivering elegant flavors of red peach, apricot, pear tart and glazed quince. This is elegant as well, with cr?me br?l?e, ruby grapefruit and white chocolate notes that carry through to the long finish. Best from 2012 through 2025."
"Notes of mineral and tarragon cream drape over the core of apple crisp flavors. Savory herbal accents mark the crisp finish. Drink now through 2020."
"90 Points- Wine Spectator. Offers a silky sweetness to the apricot, fresh apple and ripe pineapple flavors. Broad-textured, with plenty of honey and cream notes on the plush finish. Drink now through 2032."
"Full rich fruit bouquet with ripe apple, pear and apricot aromas- A full flavored Riesling with a balanced acidity, in the classic B?rklin style. Uncomplicated, but still quite elegant and best served with Mediterranean cuisine, fresh salads and shellfish."
"93 pts - WS Luscious and tangy, with grapefruit and raisin notes permeating the creamy texture. Offset by good acidity, with a lingering grapefruit and spice aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 120 cases made. Rated as one of the Top 10 Rieslings at the Hyatt National Riesling Challenge, 2006."
"Known as The Monkey Wine due to its distinct bottle. They put this on the bottle because of the valley that Affentaler is located in Baden. This dry Riesling offers a slightly fruity flavour that they recommend serving with seafood, salads, and poultry dishes."
"A full bodied Riesling with great minerality. A beautiful, fruit-forward nose of great finesse and classic acidity."
