2009 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese
Community Tasting Notes 63

February 17, 2017 - Lovely wine with delicious ripe flavors of honeysuckle and sweet apricot but it doesn't possess the bracing acidity that I look for in a spatlese-level wine. Finishes rather sweet but with good complexity and nice mineral notes. Better for me in higher acid vintages.

January 28, 2017 - German Wine Society (San Francisco): Yellow-golden; a bit more funky/earthy, minerally, some fruit as well; palate is slightly sweet, medium acid, nice fruit flavors; medium-plus finish. Very nice complexity and depth compared to the 2009 Emrich Schonleber, slightly less acid than the comparison wine but overall well integrated together. 92
November 29, 2016 - It's not often that words fail me but suffice say this is superb and that is all I need to say...
October 30, 2016 - Coravin fun - German Riesling tasting...then drinking! (E & M's in the rocks, Sydney): From Coravin. sweet spice, apple, very slight wet stone, very slight pineapple and almost marzipan quality. Zestily acidic, off dry, muted spice apple. Long. Pleasant

October 28, 2016 - Nice but a bit too sweet to me for a Spatlese. Warm vintage that lacks great acidity.
