Wine Advocate 89 points - Given 80 grams of residual sugar accompanied by much lower acidity than its 2010 counterpart, it’s no wonder that Kesselstatt’s 2011 Scharzhofberger Riesling Spatlese – from lightly-botrytized fruit – tastes decidedly sweeter than that predecessor. But this circumstance fits the candied apple, watermelon and liqueur-like herbal essences that dominate its polished, creamy and delicate palate, and there is a fine sense of clarity as well as refreshing primary juiciness to the effusive, honey-tinged finish, so that the wine’s confectionary tendencies are checked. It would, I suspect, take so long for this wines impression of sweetness to begin backing off that it will probably be best enjoyed through 2030 when unabashed sweetness is desired. Unlike in 2010, this great site in its stylistically-varied renditions is not a clear across-the-board standout in the 2011 Kesselstatt collection. (Oct 2013)
