Consisting largely of fruit harvested in mid-November from Loibenberg, the Knoll 2010 Riesling Smaragd Vinothekfullung is loaded with succulently ripe fig and white peach; glazed with quince preserves; mingled with smoky dark tobacco; and suffused with invigoratingly peppery mineral impingement and saliva-drawing salinity. This is an example of leaving behind close to the limit (for Smaragd) in residual sugar and thereby enhancing the lusciously ripe aspects of a 2010 without engendering any conflict with the wine’s quickening acidity. The expansive, persistent finish practically glows, with pepper, tobacco, brown spices, and black tea adding depth and counterpoint to its rich fruit. I’d plan on following it for a dozen, or perhaps more years. 91-92 points, David Shildknecht- Wine Advocate
