Yellow plum, white peach, lemon, high-toned herbal essences, and nut oils scent Donnhoff's off-dry 2009 Riesling (which, as usual, originates in the Oberhauser Felsenberg), then migrate to a palate that exhibits an alluring counterpoint of creaminess and brightness that parallels its contrast of nut oils and citrus. Subtle suggestions of fruit pit are deftly integrated into a finish of lip-smacking persistence and near-dryness. This - like its 2008 predecessor - is among the most expressive and irresistible off-dry generic Rieslings I can recall at Weingut Donnhoff. It ought to prove deliciously versatile for at least the next ten or a dozen years.
Harmonious and succulent, this epitomizes the crisp, vibrant style of the vintage. Its acidity is balanced by intensity and a supple texture, ending clean and refreshing. Drink now through 2014.
Fresh raspberry and blueberry; clover and honeysuckle scent the Donnhoff 2008 Riesling, then mingle with lime and orange cream on a delicate, refreshing palate, transparent to crushed stone, salt, and iodine, and leading to a sappy, dynamic finish. Despite the strong acid profile of 2008, Donnhoff dialed back the residual sugar here and with his Kabinetts, a decision he and I discussed in the context of my repeatedly-voiced concerns that the schizoid tendencies that beset increasingly many German growers (either the wine must be legally trocken or pronouncedly sweet) infiltrate even this address. In the present instance we have an impeccably-balanced outstanding value that will remain delicious for at least a decade not that many if any wine lovers are going to test this.
An alluring estate Riesling, featuring floral, grapefruit, orange and stone notes. Fine harmony and length fill out the profile. Drink now through 2015.
Smoky flint and mineral aromas can be found in both the aromatics and flavor profile of the 2001 Riesling QbA. This elegantly crafted wine soars across the palate with loads of flower-laden minerals. Light to medium-bodied and exhibiting admirable purity, this concentrated offering is one of the finest QbAs I've tasted to date. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
