Light yellow, very healthy for its age. This is all citrus on the nose and in the mouth. Medium weight, off dry, orange oil flavors, acidity not that prominent. Still very good but just not that complex beyond the attractive fruit.
Light hay in color, light nose, just slight petrol and flowered fruit; Lovely, elegant flavor, moderate sweetness, fairly light on its feet, with a slight apple juice note, moderate acidity, a touch of saline on the finish. Very pretty wine, drink it fairly quickly out of the bottle, at cooler temperature to retain some acidity. I enjoyed this, but was also a little disappointed given the vintage and producer.
The most glorious colour - all flourescent lime-gold and green, it almost looks like olive oil.. Takes a while to wake up but gives a brilliant bouquet; part floral, part stone fruit, part honey. Fat textured in the mouth this has copious richness but the focus and precision to carry it off. Reverberating and very good in the finish. A little more delineation and may come with time.
Cellared since release; cork was in much better shape than my other Donnhoffs from this era. Floral, lemony nose. Burnished, secondary fruit on the palate with honeyed pineapple and lychee. Lots of extract creates a very long and slatey finish. Terrific interplay of RS and acid. One of the very best spatlesen I have had the pleasure of tasting. In a very good spot.
Much more intense, powerful, and sweeter than the '99 Hermannshohle that preceded it. Packed with red fruit and peach with the start of developing honeyed and smoky accents. This is a big wine but very well balanced, with lots of sweetness buttressed by acidity. Long. Fantastic, but a wine for the future, whereas the Hermannshohle's about being enjoyable now.
