Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2016 Riesling Schiefer has a delicately aromatic bouquet of mirabelles and sage intertwined with a fine slate aroma. On the palate, this is a lithe but tight and mineral Saar Riesling with round, very elegant, highly attractive fruit. The finish is mouthwatering. Probably the finest Schiefer Riesling I have ever tasted at Van Volxem. Tasted March 2018.
