Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale grassy color. Aromas of tart Lime, grapefruit, and green apple notes. Mild peach skin, a touch of nuts, with a silky, and a tangy, mild mineral notes. This is a dry-style Riesling that is medium-to-full bodied. Medium finish of tart, fresh pear, melon and tropical fruits. Great with oily foods.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A light, subdued aroma of apricot and lemon with a light tough of dried herbs. The taste is smooth apple and slightly bitter apricot. smooth mouth-feel with medium-plus acidity.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This Austrian Riesling is straw in colour with aromas of lemon, pear, peach and melon. It is medium-light bodied and dry with flavours of lemon, lime and green apple. At 12.5% the alcohol is higher than you would normally expect, nevertheless this wine will pair well with grilled chicken or pork.
Luc Delorme rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Mildly aromatic, this lemon-coloured Riesling initially presents a nose of citrus and minerality that is hallmark of a riesling. Some vegetal tones are present, which is is not unexpected for a cool climate Riesling. Pleasant on the palate, this Riesling maintains the citrus aromas, but with some sweeter tree fruit tones coming through.

Fairly dry as far as Rieslings go, most of the sugar in the grapes has been fermented into alcohol, which is on the high side for a cool climate wine. Good all-around, with a bit of uniqueness resulting from the cooler Austrian climate. Would pair well with panko-crusted salmon, or as an aperitif.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Presentation: Classic, old-world label, like many others on the shelf, though the embossed name of the winery is classy.
Appearance: Pale lemon colour
Nose: Light to medium intensity aromas of sweet honeydew melon, fuzzy peaches and citrus (tangerines)
Taste: Dry, medium bodied, medium acidity, lime, lemon, minerality
Finish: Medium finish with some citrus and minerality
Overall impression: An approachable Riesling that can be sipped by itself or paired with a variety of vegetable and white meat-based dishes
Value: unknown
