Robert Parker has described Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken’s wines as “spectacularly long-aging Riesling” with “lip-smacking balance”. And the 2015 vintage comes highly-rated by both Jancis Robinson and Mosel Fine Wines, an independent review of Mosel Riesling. The latter have said that “the 2015 vintage will go down as one of the great vintages at the Estate” and that the production “nicely underlines why Spätlese and Auslese are the sweet spot of the 2015 vintage in the Mosel.”


Jancis Robinson awarded the “super-pure” 2015 Geltz-Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Auslese a resounding 18 points and asked “Who could dislike this?” Mosel Fine Wines gave it 94 points noting: “What a little beauty in the making!”


Although roughly half the price, Mosel Fine Wines made the 2015 Geltz-Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Spätlese their Wine of the Month August 2016, awarding it an equal 94 points and saying that “the finesse and elegance are simply to die for as the wine lingers on long after having been tasted!” Jancis Robinson concurred, rating it at 17.5 points and describing it as “Racy and pure. Fly-away quality…”.
