Lovely and still wonderfully fresh. Showing slate and mineral rain water notes on the nose with tangerine rind, limeade and white peach fruit on the light but so wonderfully balanced palate. Finishes with good length. A bit weightier and also a bit more youthful than the last bottle. A lovely Kabinett drinking very well with a decade of positive development ahead. 88pts

Fresh citrus, mostly grapefruit on the nose. Off dry, with warm apples and pears and a hint of fresh spice. Finish is short with a bit of citrus. A super refreshing, delicious wine.

Very very nice - excellent acidity, extremely racy, intense minerality. Sweet (8% give or take) yet has the acidity to come off as tart. A fantastic wine

Winemaker's Notes:

Dönnhoff is best known for his sweet wines, and rightly so, as these are consistently some of the most magnificent wines in the world. However, he also demonstrates a mastery of the dry style, achieving a balance, depth and harmony that have become the hallmarks of this estate. I have a particular preference for the exquisite Hermannshöhle, from 60-year-old vines, but really, you can't go wrong with anything that says Dönnhoff on the label. Incredible intensity, leaping out of the glass with force and magnificent authority. Tropical aromas of pineapple, caramel, crystallized mango and mango syrup, packed with concentrated depth and an ultravelvety texture, but somehow tautly-wound, with a finely-tuned, silky balance of power and finesse. Opulent and creamy yet crystal-clear, incredibly pure, virtually unending.
