James Suckling, 92 Points 

"There’s an attractive, reductive and flinty edge here that holds fresh citrus fruit in good stead. The palate has a succulent, juicy and attractively fleshy feel with a wealth of ripe peaches and nectarines. Smooth and delicious." 

Wine Spectator, 91 Points 

"An elegant version, with elderflower, white raspberry and candied orange notes, underscored by prominent minerality and vibrant acidity. Shows lots of energy. Very pretty now, but will be better in a few years. Best from 2021 through 2029." 

Wine Enthusiast, 91 Points 

"Aromas of lemon candy and tangerine peel are accented by earth and dried, savory herbs in this bristling semisweet kabinett. It's bright and citrusy on the palate, framed by zesty lime acidity and a grip of astringency on the finish. Lovely now but it should drink well through 2030." 

Wine & Spirits, 91 Points 

"Harvested from the steep gray-slate soils of the Ockfener Bockstein, this reflects that vineyard’s sunny, protected position in the density and ripeness of its flavors. It’s overtly mineral, with notes of petrol winding through the lime-curd fruit, and a savory umami character that brings to mind parmesan-cheese rinds. At the same time, the acidity is lively, the wine feeling youthful, ready to take on a rich, cheesy mushroom risotto." 

Vinous, 91 Points 

"A penetratingly pungent combination of mint, cilantro, cress and orange blossom is accompanied by prickly hints of reduction, which, however, conveys some invigoration on both nose and palate. And although this Kabinett – in contrast with the corresponding Goldtröpfchen – harbors a mere 8% alcohol, there is considerable acidity to balance out its high residual sugar, if with a somewhat sweet-sour upshot. The feel is polished, and a sense of buoyancy and a mouthwatering lick of salinity accompany floral perfume, herbal pungency and bright lime and apple juiciness on the finish. When this settles down in bottle, it may prove yet more impressive. Drinking window: 2020 - 2038." 

Wine Advocate, 90 Points 

"The 2018 Bockstein Kabinett is clear and intense on the classic nose that is complex and slightly matured yet still reductive. Piquant and fresh on the palate, this is a classy and vital yet still reductive Kabinett with structure and concise acidity but also juicy fruit." 

Alcohol: 8%
