Dönnhoff H. Riesling Spätlese Nahe Norheimer Dellchen 2003
Editorial Reviews for Dönnhoff H. Riesling Spätlese Nahe Norheimer Dellchen
Still quite fresh with lots of sweet fruit flavors characteristic of the vintage, but this is pretty simple. Peak drinking window: 2005-2013.
Very light and slightly alcoholic nose with a nice powdered gravel top note and some earthy apple and apple blossom notes accenting a core of light apricot fruit. This smells surprisingly tight and nervous. Lightly if obviously sweet in the mouth, this has plenty of acidity keeping things juicy and a nice light accent note of green apple with a flicker of minerality. A bit plump, but this is drinking very well today for a simple quaffer. 85pts

Aromas of kirsch, fresh nectarine and honey. Refined and riveting interplay of pit fruits and citrus on a plate of wet stone. Very ripe and stuffed with extract yet not in the least overweight. The finish displays rapier penetration of crystal-clear fruit and mineral.
