Wine Advocate

94+ Points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Auslese "Anrecht" (AP 36 17) has a deep, spicy bouquet of super ripe and concentrated fruits intermixed with slightly oaky notes, although the wine has never seen a fuder. Intense, piquant and structured on the palate, this is a moderately sweet, fresh and structured Riesling with salt, grip and tension in the finish. This is not a classic Auslese but a terroir-driven wine with concentration, grip and mineral tension. The finish is salty and almost drying, so the sweetness doesn't weigh that much here. Impressive." #236, 4/18.

Vinous Media

92 Points, David Schildknecht, Vinous: "Scents of brown-spiced dried pear and apple lead into a glossy, glycerol-rich, sappy and soothing palate. The long finish delivers a burst of fresh fruit as well as a transparency to stony, saline nuances that one might not have anticipated given what went before, but which nicely demonstrate the effects of block-picking in capturing virtues of Riesling berries ranging from green-golden and still-crunchy through nobly concentrated." 1/18.

James Suckling

93 Points, James Suckling: "The yellow grapefruit says "hi" and wants you to know that he's the king. This may not be the ultimate Mosel auslese, but it's a really delicious and joyful wine. Best during the next decade." 1/17.
