Mouth watering acidity to balance the rich succulent sweetness of the wine. Not what I have experienced in the past with wines from Nahe, more like a Mosel IMO. Petrol notes, over ripe mango, an almost botrytis esk note. Continued to evolve throughout dinner. Paired with Thai food.
From 375 surprisingly dry for Auslese yet still youngish and relatively primary which was surprising. This needed some air to reach a more full expression and if anything was a bit closed down. Everything seems to be here yet it lacked a bit of the magic i expected from a 2001. will give the next bottle at lest 2-3 years & keep my fingers crossed.
An unusual Donnhoff from 750. Decanted and started to peak at about the 4 hour mark when the nose got more spicy and expressive. Stellar and right in the zone. Fresh and somewhat Mosel-like in character with pure liquid slate throughout. Waxy texture and an integrated acid zip that leads into the medium-length finish rather than being up front. Graceful and stately... doesn't drink like a declassified BA despite the goldkapsel status. IMO, will drink like a table wine before long. I look to space my other two bottles over the next 10 years.
Light yellow. Apple jelly with a tad of honey layered on top. Medium weight, pristine fruit and spices, off dry, fabulous acidity. Just at the front end of its drinking window. Gorgeous with tons of room for development.
