Vinous: 91 Points

Enticingly fragrant nose combines apricot acacia honey and white pepper. A touch of vanillin oak from a new cask troubles Peter Malberg but others will find that it adds an element of complexity. Although supple and wonderfully ripe without undue alcohol a subtle freshness gives a filigree character to the pear extract flavor. Finishes with lingering notes of wet stone pistachio and subtle spice.


Wine Advocate: 90 Points

Due to pervasive shriveling thanks to a late-August heat spike Veyder-Malberg's 2012 Riesling Bruck effectively reflects an extreme selection involving separation of still-juicy portions of clusters from the rest. Fresh lime and apricot garlanded with lily-of-the-valley coriander and mint in the nose migrate to an infectiously tartly juicy palate (no desiccation here!) whose vivacity is enhanced by retained CO2. A tight tart tingling back-end doesn't yet perpetuate the complexity that preceded it on the nose and mid-palate but it does harbor welcome salivary gland-stimulating salinity and impressive sheer persistence. I'd want to revisit this in a year or two but I suspect it may well prove worth following through 2020.
