" 92 points Wine Spectator: "Explosive in its intensity and aromas. Vivid flavors of apricot, pear, black currant and slate mark this delicate young Riesling. Finesse to spare. Great expression of grape and site. A touch lighter, yet more expressive than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr today. Best from 2006 through 2020." According to David Schildknecht of the International Wine Cellar: "It took a few minutes for the fermentative overlay to blow off here, revealing blue and black fruits, citrus, salt and iodine minerality, with a tingling combination of acidity and spritz. Like all of the wines here today, this is notable for its delicacy of touch and satisfying length. 1 star."" Best 2006-2020

88 points "The 2002 Riesling Spatlese Graacher Himmelreich is similar to the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, yet with more flavors of gun flint and slightly better balance. Light to medium-bodied, it reveals smoky slate, pear, flint and mineral flavors in its satin-textured, soft character." Best 2007-2020
