Wine Advocate

95 Points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Gold Capsule (AP 18) displays a very intense and perfectly ripe, but healthy stone fruit aroma intermixed with delicate flinty/slatelike flavors. On the plate, this Gold Capsule is as lush as it is pure, piquant and salty; it is provided with remarkable precision and concentration, with a still stimulatingly fresh and vibrant finish. This is a great Auslese, indeed." 4/17 #230

Vinous Media

94 Points, David Schildknecht, Vinous: "The characteristic citricity of this site has here largely given way to heady, ripely scented, drippingly luscious Persian melon and white peach, allied with quince jelly and wreathed in honeysuckle. At once creamy and delicate, this youthfully harmonious elixir introduces subtle suggestions of candied lemon and grapefruit peels on a soothingly sustained finish that incorporates strongly saliva-inducing salinity reminiscent of the collection's Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese. Around one-third of the fruit for this was botrytis-affected, reported Katharina Prüm. (There was also an auctioned Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel, but I have not had opportunity to taste it.)" 06/17

James Suckling

97 Points, James Suckling, "What makes this stand out is the gigantic mineral freshness that's perfectly married to its richness. This gives the finish a whole extra dimension lacking in the majority of 2015 Auslese. The nose still needs some time to open, and this will be so much more effusive from 2019. Hoping to live to experience it at its mature peak in a couple of decades." 06/17
