Here the recent scores from Wine Enthusiast pubblicated in its Buying guide – August 2019:

96 points | FELDMARSCHALL VON FENNER Müller-Thurgau 2017 (Editors’ Choice!)
“Heady aromas of yellow stone fruit, alpine herb and white spring wildflower virtually leap out of the glass. Made from a single vineyard located nearly 3,300 feet above sea level, it’s delicious, elegant and enveloping, delivering ripe apricot, peach, white grapefruit and mineral alongside fresh acidity. A mineral note suggesting wet stone lingers on the finish.”

90 points | RACHTL Sauvignon Blanc Riserva 2015
“Aromas of cedar, toasted hazelnut, tropical fruit and hay slowly take shape in the glass along with hints of tomato vine and grilled herb. The rounded enveloping palate offers grapefruit, mature apple, fennel and saline while tangy acidity refresh the rich flavors. It’s complex and intriguing but also mature so drink sooner rather than later to capture the remaining fruit and freshness.”

90 points | TURMHOF Sauvignon Blanc 2017
“Alluring aromas of grilled herbs, dried pineapple slices, tomato leaves and graphite form the nose. On the linear, savory palate, tangy acidity balances grapefruit, green melon and dried apricot before a saline finish.”

89 points | MERUS Pinot Bianco 2018
“Linear and racy, this vibrant white has delicate scents of yellow stone fruit and white wildflower. The crisp palate offers yellow apple, citrus and a hint of saline alongside firm acidity.”
