    (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.
