Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Sussreserve gives the winemaker the ability to precisely balance the acidity of a Riesling to it's level of sweetness. I see what the winemaker wanted to achieve. Lots of crispness - lots. Offset by enough sweetness that nobody could say it was too much. Some might prefer a touch more sweetness but it's so personal. Anyway expect more than a smack of dryness from this Riesling.
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rosewood's Süssreserve Riesling benefits from a post-fermentation top-up of fresh (unfermented) Riesling juice which adds an extra dose of sweet and refreshing flavour, texture, and complexity to this unique and much loved style of wine. Off dry, it's loaded with sweet orchard and tropical fruit, with a long zippy finish. Terrific with spicy Asian dishes, BBQ fare, or fresh summer salads with balsamic dressing and fresh cut fruit. Tasted April 2018. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Aromas of peach, orange blossom, honey, and marmalade. It is bright and has crisp acidity with stone fruit flavours and hints of clementine. Delicious!

Pair with Asian food.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
