2003 Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen, Spätlese, lieblich
17.5 point = outstanding, full of character
"a honey cake with rasins and all sorts of fruit and then really crisp with minerals - simply brilliant and top quality (and at least equally good as the also outstanding "BLUE CAP" of Mannberg - or even better?)"
WEINWIRTSCHAFT, Meininger Verlag, Ausgabe 09/2004

2003 Rauenthaler Baiken, Kabinett, trocken
15.0 points = above average to very good
"fresh aroma of yellow fruit, apple, citrus..., juicy, sinewy, tangy and second to the dry Spätlese from the same location - which is twice as expensive - only in richness and mellowness, if at all; ...mastered the vintage decidedly well.

Deutscher Riesling Erzeuger-Preis 2001
In the regional class Rheingau, the Winery Langwerth von Simmern took an excellent First Place for the presented Riesling collection.
PRO RIESLING, Trier; 2001

"The best dry Rieslings of recent years can be found in the Langwerth von Simmern 2001 vintage. The "Erste Gewächs" (First Growth) from the Mannberg site as well as the dry Spätlese from the Rauenthaler Baiken are among the best in the Rheingau. The same is true for the Eiswein. Convincing collection, continuing on their way to the top!"
Eichelmann, Deutschlands Weine 2003

2001 Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen Riesling Kabinett trocken
"This is so pineappleasing, hissed the Rachendrachen!" And we couldn't agree more with this verdict [by the cartoon dragon advertising fruit-flavoured throat drops in Germany]. A wine with playful exotic fruit, flavours of pineapple drops and lime combined with pleasant and smooth acidity. With this wine, the Rachendrachen enjoys Asian vegetables or orders a Hawaiian pizza.
Der Berliner Weinführer, 2003
