Natalie's Score: 88/100

Sweet with ripe apricot and honeysuckle notes. Light-bodied and aromatic. Great with very spicy and hot dishes. Riesling Spätlese food pairings: blue-veined cheeses, spicy sushi. Enchanting Feta Cheese Wine

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 1999 Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Spätlese has intense notes of yellow apple and lifted notes of estery petrol; also light, buttery champione notes emerge on the finish of excellent length. It has a medium, integrated body and a good balance between residual sugar (medium sweetness), acidity and fruit. Enjoy on its own for the next 3-5 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - 14 year old Riesling for $20 translates into BUY BUY BUY before it’s sold out! Tasted Feb/13.

Bethann McLaren rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An off-dry to medium dry Riesling, but with tons of bracing acidity that balances it out beautifully. Obvious petrol on the nose with lots of ripe stone fruit, bordering on tropical fruit (passionfruit, melon type of thing). Layers of marmalade, candied citrus and honey on the palate. A fairly light bodied wine, but the residual sugar gives a very velvety, full mouth feel. Buy it and drink it up stat!
Nicely maturing nose of mineral oil, river stones, lime cordial and grapefruit zest. The flavours are marvellously integrated in this soft, semi-sweet wine and finely woven notes of steely minerality, stone, citrus, and petrol seem to glide on the backbone of bracing acidity. Showing development, and delicious today, this will continue to evolve over a further 5+ years. Aromatic & Flavourful. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013
