Dönnhoff Nahe Riesling Oberhäuser Brücke Spätlese 2003
The OberhÃ¤user BrÃ¼cke vineyard lies furthest down the slope, protected for much of the day by a 400 metre hill nearby. With not a hint of botrytis, this beautiful wine is a masterpiece: brilliantly clean, showing the finest of textures, great energy, so svelte yet so delicate too.
Editorial Reviews for Dönnhoff Nahe Riesling Oberhäuser Brücke Spätlese
Still a bit on the young, sweet and fruity side, this shows a touch of evolution at this early edge of what will probably be a compressed drinking time frame. Peak drinking window: 2010-2016.
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
Lightly evolved on the nose yet retaining fine minerality and nice apple blossom top notes over heirloom apple fruit. This is a bit thick but actually turns out to be quite agile in the mouth, with sufficient acidity to balance the sweetness and fine mineral cut. The flavors are both mineral and pollen in the mouth with a faint honeyed note appearing on the back end. There’s a nice clementine, orange peel element here as well, which turns pithier on the finish. Finish shows modest length with a sneaky return of apricot, lime, red fruit and quartz. A sneaky wine that very likely will improve. 88pts
External Reviews for Dönnhoff Nahe Riesling Oberhäuser Brücke Spätlese
This expressive auslese provides a glimpse into the future. Firm and ripe, with red berry, vanilla, citrus and mineral flavors, it merely hints at its charms. Balanced and long; give it a few years to open. Best from 2007 through 2020.
Fiery aromatic notes of distilled berries and smoked meat. An intensely concentrated, compact mass of citrus and berries on the palate; embryonic at present but feeds a dynamic dance of striking finishing flavors. This should evolve for years as a great monument to its site.
