Tight on the nose with some oily, raw nut notes over a base of quartz and raw quince. Bright acidity cuts down the middle of the palate but the fruit seems to struggle to stay with it, falling away to the sides in the mouth. This is lean and focused but lacks a bit of snap. A lot of green apple, citrus and unripe apricot flavors are attractive, but this also lacks a bit of length. It finishes on the dry side for a Spatlese. A bit disjointed. 88pts

    "Fresh lemon, grapefruit, diverse red berries and buddleia hauntingly scent the Donnhoff 2008 Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spatlese and inform a palate of utmost refinement and delicacy, transparent to salt, stone, gingery spice, and floral diversity. Juicy, tart, faintly bitter suggestions of fresh pineapple add invigoration to a long, refreshing finish. This represents an unusually vivacious, incipiently complex Kirschheck with all of the seductive allure one has come to expect from this bottling. It should be fascinating to follow for 15-20 years, although it-s irresistible young. " Wine Advocate , #187 Feb 2010, David Schildknecht

    "Thyme, mint, lime, and orange inform the nose of Donnhoff's 2008 Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese which offers a lither texture and brighter, more saline mineral dimension than one is used to. In fact, it's remarkable the degree to which this resembles the corresponding Brucke in its intricate interweaving of herbal, mineral, citrus, and red berry strands, while wreathed in an aura of smoke and crushed stone. don't be deceived, says Donnhoff, there's a lot more stuffing behind this Hermannshohle. And by the way, the analyses of these Spatlesen, including Kupfergrube, are almost identical; the handling in the cellar was the same; and there aren't even 500 meters to separate the three of them. Plan to follow this for 20 or more years and to expect - as its author suggests - further complexity and richness along the way." Wine Advocate , #187 Feb 2010, David Schildknecht
