88 Points

Tuesday, February 3, 2004 - I did it for science! Last night Eric and I had what I thought was an off bottle of this wine. I had one last bottle left, so I decided to see if it was in fact an off bottle. Interestingly enough, last night's cork was soaked completely through. This cork was soaked 95% of the way through. When will the German estate start using quality corks and not overfilling? At first whiff I was concerned that last night's similar to this one. It reveals little but mustiness, minerality, and woodiness. The palate, however, is remarkably different. My initial reaction on first sip, was "Ah, Donnhoff!!" The palate is lush and mouthcoating. It shows minerality, peaches, and lemons. This lacks the depth and complexity of a great Riesling, but it is a good effort.
