93 POINTS: Falstaff Wine Guide 2019/2020
“Alte Reben" means “old vines" and designates a wine sourced from our oldest vineyards with vines averaging 50 years. Older vines are less productive, forming fewer and smaller grapes that profit from a well-developed root system. This root system reaches deeply into the ground and supplies its fruit with potent nourishment. As a consequence, wines of these vineyards are extremely flavorful with enormous concentration.
Fully ripe, delicate at the same time, some lecithin, pepper, also a hint of blossom honey, abundantly detailed; nicely contoured, firmly interwoven, packed with notes of yellow fruit (Golden Delicious apple), creamy texture and conspicuous length.
