Stephen Reinhardt (RobertParker.com) "The 2015 Rheingau Riesling Trocken Lorcher Krone has a very pure and chalky/smoky bouquet with lemon fruit. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, concentrated, round, piquant and well-structured Riesling with a silky texture, but great finesse. The finish is very pure, compact and very salty. This is great dry Riesling from Lorch."
This season, with its long Indian summer, produced a wine with what we believe to be a particularly interesting future. On appearance its bright straw hue almost sparkles. Blossoms, wet river stones and an expansive medley of yellow peach and grapefruit aromas anticipate what is to follow on the palate. Powerful grapefruit, talc and a compote of other fruit flavours are sustained in a distinctly taut structure.
18+ Points – Raymond Chan "Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green hues on edge, this has a softly fresh and full nose of concentrated, pure lime juices, white stonefruits and acacia florals, with richness and density. Dry to taste, the palate has elevated acidity providing raciness and zesty lime and apple-like flavours on a well-weighted palate with body, presence and concentration. The wine has very fine, smooth textures enlivened by the acidity which carries through to a sustained finish showing pure citrus fruit nuances. This should age well."
95 Points – Bob Campbell "Fine, dry and yet weighty wine in a taut and restrained style showing just a glimpse of its potential. Subtle mineral, floral, spice and citrus flavours restrained by fine acidity."
17.5 Points – Jancis Robinson "Fantastic fennel and lime curd flavour - really aristocratic Riesling, showing compelling maturity. There is a little oiliness on the palate, and plenty of gorgeous floral scent. Absolutely tremendous Riesling character, and very much in the classic Germanic mould."
