Here goes; Riesling as fugue-state. Again as it often is, it seems like the primordial essence of Riesling, in sublime balance, with a gesture of pure force and another gesture of pure delicacy. This is an old soul here, a Saturnine being. On the surface there's mineral and quince and salty botrytis, but it all roots so deeply into your being you can never pull it out.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese rises to the challenge with a performance of unforgettable delicacy, refinement and elegance, without stinting on honeyed richness. Gardenia and heliotrope offer a heady bouquet, sprinkled with framboise and lemon. Red raspberry and quince preserves lemon, salt and slate mingle on a creamy, seemingly weightless palate, in a harmonious colloquy, tartness folded into honey and vanilla cream richness. Sensational dynamism, penetrating length, and mysteriously mineral, savory, depth (there is already an unexpected note of bitter chocolate) await you in a bottle of this Brucke over the next quarter century.

Score: 96. —David Schildknecht, October 2008.

Wine Spectator

A firm white, with peach, lime and mineral flavors on an elegant profile. Sleek and understated for the vintage, this has a complex range of flavors and detail. Best from 2012 through 2022.

Score: 90. —Bruce Sanderson, April 30, 2008.
