What stood out was the creamy texture. Medium dry with white fruits. Actually I was very disappointed especially for a GK wine. It is far off the mark when compared to the same vintage Niederhauser Hermannshole.
From 375ml bottle. The wine did not really get a chance to evolve very much in the glass, since it was consumed to quickly (1 hour)!
Nose begins with a mix of tropical fruits and botrytis with suggestions of mineral. The tropical fruits is very pure and consists of pineapple, mango and nectarine. The mineral quickly develops to take a more prominent role. The palate is perhaps just medium instense. Lovely balance that suggests this should be sipped as a dessert as opposed to with a dessert. Sweetness surprisingly integrated already, but still a sweet wine of course. Fruity lingering finish. Accompanied a fondant au chocolat with caramelised pineapple flambéed in cointreau beautifully but also fantastic on its own! Outstanding and not too early to enjoy if you like the fruity style.

(Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Auslese) Another wine displaying great purity of fruit here; if there is ever a wine that truly is captured light in a glass, this is it. It is gentle but creamy, finely texture, balanced, and so finely poised. Overall a divine composition that transcends words as a description. Wonderful.
