Wine Advocate 96 pts! "From
four plots with different soils (from loess to gneiss, altitudes and
expositions from southeast to southwest), Martin Mittelbach’s 2019 Ried
Kellerberg Riesling Smaragd is deep, complex and excitingly stony on the
fine and bright yet coolish nose that delivers flinty as well as
crushed lemon aromas. A fabulous nose! Rich and intense but elegant and
endlessly vital and mineral, with stimulating salinity and very fine
tannins on the finish, this is a great, complex, refined and elegant
Kellerberg with a mouthwatering finish. A Must Buy from the vintage. 13%
alcohol. Tasted at the domain in June 2021."
Wine Enthusiast 95 pts! "A
flinty touch of reduction accompanies the lemon notes on the wine's
nose. The palate comes with immediate clarity and brightness that
underlines the vivid citrus freshness at the very core. This is bright
and juicy, streamlined and utterly refreshing, always reverberating with
fine lemony pithiness."
