"This Riesling is a classic Spätlese (late harvest) without botrytis, very clear and fruity. Sweetness and acidity are perfectly balanced, so that the wine is centred and the taste lingers. Sun and the fruitiness of the grape join together in a dance on your tongue. The Schloss Vollrads Spätlese has a long aging potential." —winemaker
#91, Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2015

"Rose petal and sage notes lend a garden-green freshness to this sprightly semidry Riesling. Nervy lemon-lime flavors jolt the palate awake, but are softened by plush tones of apricot and honey. It's a squarely structured wine that's revitalizing sip after sip." —Anna Lee Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"The 2013 Schloss Vollrads Spätlese has no botrytis but is characterized by ripe fruit and its racy acidity. Very pure, spicy/mineral and cool on the nose, it seems much more earthy than fruity. Ripe and juicy as well as sweet and piquant on the well-balanced palate this is a full-bodied Riesling with a good and stimulating length." —Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

"A honeyed style, filled to the brim with rich minerality and luscious creaminess. Very lush, with flavors of baked pineapple and pear sauce. Fresh and juicy on the finish. Drink now through 2035. 1,500 cases made." —Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator
