Editorial Reviews for Hermann Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese
This is maturing nicely though there doesn’t seem to be much complexity in the making, it is clear and fine with great mineral length. Peak drinking window: 2007-2016.
Tight on the nose and not revealing much, though with air some slate and lime pith appear. Still showing a hint of CO2, this tingles the tongue a bit while revealing only some slate notes that are smeared with lime preserves. Very tight and underwhelming, though this does exhibit excellent texture and balance. Quite light on the palate with fine balance of sugar and acid. A little bright lime fruit pops on the finish along with zesty acidity. This needs a couple of hours of air to really open. When it does, it reveals a clear, vibrant core of lemony citrus fruit dusted with mineral tones. The mineral really drives the long, finely focused finish. An elegant wine that wins you over with its lovely texture and balance. 91pts
