Really complexity on the nose here with an initial set of mineral, salt and gunpowder aromas that are backed up by a very bright lime candy tone. This closes slowly in the glass but offers lovely dusty slate notes. Sweet up front yet with excellent backing acidity giving this really nice cut. The fruit is fresh orchard/apricot toned on the midpalate with a nice lime squeeze finish. There is an incipient saline/mineral tone on the backend that leads to the moderately long finish. Layered and complex with excellent balance and all the components to evolve into something special. Drink 2009-2020 92pts

Just brilliant Riesling with sharp mineral cut, a touch of green herb playing off the white peach and pineapple fruit and a long finish. great acid.sugar balance kept this lively and juicy. This is a particularly intense bottling. 92pts

Redolent of nectarine, chalk and pineapple, this smells quite sweet yet in the mouth one finds superb acidity that enlivens the palate and adds length to the brilliant mineral, green apple and blood orange flavors. Still very young this has tremendous potential.92pts

Light nose of citrus and tropical fruits. It's off dry, crisp and refreshing -- love this wine.

A beautiful Reisling - crisp acidity balanced by a little residual sugar and an intense level of concentration, make this very rich, powerful, fruity wine an absolute winner

Lovely honeyed grapefruit flavors with hints of apples, pears, and white peaches. Wonderful with an apple tart. Maybe just a touch soft for those preferring rapier rieslings. Still, lip-smacking such that 375ml will not suffice for two.

It's possible that Spätlese Rieslings are the estate's best. This example is ripe, tangy, and full of concetrated mineral, which takes the wine to a new level of beauty and complexity. In a word, pristine.

Max Gerstl: Unglaublich, aber diese Auslese ist noch eine Spur konzentrierter als die Brücke, dabei aber ebenso filigran und raffiniert. Beat Caduff: «Intensive, explosive Frucht, duftet nach dem besten tropischen Früchtekorb, den es gibt. Am Gaumen extrem cremig mit fein gewobenem Körper, enormer Kraft und geschmeidigen Muskeln, extrem beweglich, enorm kräftig und elegant.» Helmut Dönnhoff: «Mir gefällt die Beschwingtheit der Weine.»

Dönnhoff's Rieslings are amongst the most magical being made today. They are pristine, lacy examples of the variety that are often breathtakingly beautiful. This off-dry Kabinett has an abundance of mineral and stone fruit character and is a perfect introduction to the wines of this estate.

To some, Donnhoff's rieslings are considered the greatest on earth, with his wines exceeding all others in clarity, polish, complexity and sheer beauty of flavor.

Da strahlt pure Lebensfreude aus dem Glas, der Duft ist von unbeschreiblicher Raffinesse. Am Gaumen ist zuerst einmal eine Fruchtaromatik zum Träumen, getragen von einer sagenhaft rassigen, aber zartschmelzend weichen Säure, der Wein hat Struktur, Fülle und Eleganz, eine echte Sensation von einer Spätlese.

Max Gerstl: Am Gaumen vereint der Wein Rasse, Fülle und eine himmlische Zitrusaromatik, da ist Leben, da ist Spiel, da ist Spannung, der Wein erfrischt und betört die Sinne, Riesling vom Feinsten und von unübertrefflicher Präzision.

Is there anything more juicily, explicitly flavorful than a Dönnhoff Auslese? Possibly, but if so, I have yet to find it. When importer Thierry Theise writes "simply, like the most perfect Riesling that can ever be" he makes a valid point. Nothing drinkable is quite so breathtaking. But seriously, one of the nice aspects of this particular Auslese is that it isn't dessert level sweetness and has a refreshing, balanced, and above all deliciously ripe quality.
