Amber +1 color. Aroma laden with minerals, pears, with slight oxidation. Balanced on entry, with acidic verve and fatty viscosity. Good fruit, hint of motor oil. Moderate finish, in intensity, complexity and length. Bottle #4 of six.
Quite nice, though a bit one dimensional. Passion fruit, stone fruits and citrus shine through with pleasant mineral notes. Not overly sweet, with nice acidity, but the wine is a little loose in the middle and overall not so focused. A good drink, though. A-/B+
This seems to be getting a little more mnerally and showing better definition as time goes on. 30 months ago tis lacked a bit of focus and cut but it's developed nicely. Ripe and tropical and rounded atatck with good minerality, line and freshness through the mid-palate to quite a long zesty finish.Very elegant. More depth here than previously too. Lovely. Bare ****

(Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese) The wines that come from this vineyard are astonishing. 'Nuff said. Shy at first but opened up like fresh bag of microwave popcorn just cut open at around fifteen minutes in. The aromas just exploded from the glass. Salt, slate, white peaches, chamomile tea, the spring onions Pierre talks about in the '01, etc blah, blah, blah . . Stunning! The palate was even better with great interplay of fruits and minerals presented on a very elegant frame. The texture was so lush and soft but still very concentrated. Layers of red fruits, currants, ripe peaches, maybe even raspberries, all with dazzling purity and focus. The finish hints at pomegranite and fresh mint. The acidity is very present but harmonizes with all the other elements on the finish. The finish lasts around one minute.
