Editorial Reviews for Riesling Spatlese Niederhauser Hermannsholle Donnhoff
Thick and rich and still quite sweet, this is a hedonist’s dream still, but I don’t see it evolving very much. Peak drinking window: 2011- 2017.
This is still notably mineral on the nose, dust and quartz with a low note of lightly dried fruit. Thick and rich in the mouth but at the same time bright with decisive acidity and a deep mid-palate vein of minerality. This tastes of steel and quartz and somehow makes my teeth ache. The fruit shows a light drying edge to it with some bitter orange marmalade accented by dried pear and light cherry notes. Big, rich and intense, this may never be elegant but it does offer intense, piercing fruit, mineral flavors and a very long finish. 89pts
