    (Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Spatlese) This wine just hit that sweet spot with one sip and whatever was bothering me that day was gone with one sip of this greta wine. Majestic aromas of slate, pineapple, tangelo, grapefruit, cherry, floral spice. Just a symphonic nose. The palate is linear and incredibly focused but juicy and alive at the same time with so much depth and the classic Donnhoff dissolve on the finish which is super complex almost fractal of minerals that explodes and dissolves away. Just majestic wine.

    (Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Spatlese) This is just awesome and I think with a touch less focus and snap than the '01 but is truly great. The nose was just awesome with sweet tart complexity and intense floral aromas with a rich cassis background. Incredibly expansive and harmonious. Just an amalagam of flavors on the nose. The palate was rich and dense with a great lightness. Ethereal with beautiful purity of fruit and saline minerality throughut. Long finish. This wine is just so complete. Wonderful.
