93/100 – Mosel Fine Wines (in 2020): "The 2010er Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese ** Caldo Infernale was made from fruit harvested at a whopping 138° Oechsle on over 100-yearold un-grafted vines in the Gewann “im Kalk,” the original part of the vineyard, and was fermented and in aged in traditional Fuder cask for two years down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar (128 g/l). This still remarkably golden-yellow colored wine offers a rather backward and delicately exotic nose made of pineapple, beeswax, bitter almond, saffron, and a hint of furniture varnish. The wine is beautifully juicy and racy on the palate, and leaves a straight and rather engaging feel of minerals, bitter tangerine, herbs, and minerals in the almost fruity rather than sweet tasting finish. This is a gorgeous sweet wine made in a racy and direct style."
17/20 Jancis Robinson: "Very ripe citrus fruit and racy acidity are rounded off nicely by a gentle touch of honey. Maybe I was hoping for a little more minerality from the slaty terroir, but the ripe fruit creates plenty of excitement. (MS)" by Michael Schmidt/jancisrobinson.com for subscribers to Purple Pages
