2020: wein.plus: "Restrained, relatively cool, fairly light yellow fruity nose with vegetal and mineral nuances. Ripe, juicy, light fruit, floral and vegetal notes, lively acidity and some grip, persistent on the palate, still a touch muted, certain depth, distinct mineral notes, very good, quite firm finish. " excellent (90 WP) top position | James Suckling: 95/100 "Such a joyful, floral nose with notes of rose and honeysuckle, plus a hint of smoke. And that’s only the beginning for this dry riesling, which can hold its own with any number of GGs, thanks to the impressive concentration of citrus fruit and nectarine. The vibrant acidity and subtle mineral freshness underline each other at the very long and expressive finish. Drink or hold."
2018: James Suckling: 95/100 Points "Beautiful flint and chalk character, creating a real sensation of freshness and minerality on the nose. Lemon curd and plenty of earl-grey and green tea are in no short supply. The medium-to full-bodied palate is vertical and tense with gleaming acidity and a colorful, building finish. Drink in 2021." | Robert Parker: 91+/100 Points "The 2018 Mandelgarten Riesling is pure, fresh and fine, but also ripe and aromatic on the nose. The palate is pure, fresh and straight, less juicy now than the 2017 but nuanced and stimulating due to an earlier harvest. Stimulatingly salty and piquant on the finish."
