2009 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese
Community Tasting Notes 61
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.

June 25, 2016 - HDH auction tasting at Tru; 6/24/2016-6/25/2016 (Chicago, IL): #12-10, 8.5% abv. Mea culpa. The attitude I had against the 2009 vintage was wrong. This is a delicoius bottle of Spätlese that, despite the obvious signs of Prädikat creep, remains well within the classification of Spätlese. Quite light, but this is immensely sweet at the same time. Crisp, with lots of sweet apple and tropical fruit. No signs of botrytis -- despite the crazy sweetness on this, this is still a clear and crisp bottle of riesling.3 people found this helpful Comments (3)

March 27, 2016 - Really liked this - an array of ripe citrus, apple, and other orchard fruits augmented with floral, spicy, and mineral notes, all conveyed with remarkable polish and focus on a lightweight frame. A fantastic Spätlese that has a ton of complexity, but also a sheer lightness and joie de vivre that makes it far too easy to drink.
