2016 Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese
Another 2016 Spätlese from Dönnhoff that's still a bit shy on the nose, but on the palate it’s like a huge glittering diamond with more facets flashing many colours. An extremely long super-mineral finish that is impeccably clean in spite of the generous grape sweetness in this masterpiece of elegance. Better from 2018 with decades of ageing potential. Made from organic grapes and Fair'n Green certified.

The 2016 Nahe Riesling Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Spätlese is bright, fresh and coolish-piquant on the nose, with flinty and slightly reductive aromas. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a generous, mouth-filling Spätlese with a long, piquant and spicy-mineral finish. The Hermannshöhle is more dense and rich on the palate, the Brücke more light, delicate and finessed.
