    June 8, 2021 - I think this is a bit shut down at the moment. Nose is very nice but the palate doesnt have the depth it should. Also finishes very sweet. Still enjoyable but I dont think it's at its peak.

    May 22, 2021 - Orange zest, honeycomb, passion fruit, lemon. Really enjoyable right now.

    January 16, 2021 - 2019 Donnhoff GGs+GK friends (Zoom, Chicago, IL): Nose: The nose is highly aromatic and deep with pears, honeydew, green apples, quince, nectarines, red apples, cheese rinds, melons, some cinnamon spices, and oily notes. This takes a little bit to get fully going with there being a great intersection between primary and maturing tones.

    Taste: The feel is Medium- bodied with crisp, high acidity. The feel is lithe, balanced, and deep with pears, green and red apples, nectarines, honeydew, cheese rinds, cinnamon spices, and oily notes. The finish just doesn't quit as it keeps gaining as it crosses the palate.

    Overall: This is lovely and right at the beginning of its maturity. The nose is drop-dead gorgeous and the feel shows the poise and quality that one expects from Hermannshohle.

    December 28, 2020 - 刚开始香气比较封闭,醒酒之后好些,有些甘蔗气味打头,菠萝果酱、桃杏果脯等组成的果味,奶油,蜂蜜,带有些许焦糖等贵腐味,显得绵密。中后段有薄荷糖的粉质清凉,比较俊秀且线性。入口比较集中收束且线性,甜度高,比较清甜,显得酸度不太突出,但总体有点闷。果味菠萝风热带果酱蜜饯果干等,蜂蜜,焦糖,酸奶油,偶尔露面的小白花,一点陈年带来的枸杞根和红枣,纯净秀丽,收尾处有一点点姜汁,有金属感,滑向余韵。喝多几口有点点腻感。92/100

    November 6, 2020 - A nice Auslese, balanced, fine. Peach and a nice backbone of chalk and acidity. Very elegant.

    2012 German Catalog, 6/1/2012 (link)

    (Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese "Goldkapsel") ($47.00) Similarly numinous and serene, but here the impact is kaleidoscopic, a thousand tiny beads of nuance, a fugue of nuance, leading to a fugue-state – it is all there to be seen, everything you thought you were looking for – and yet you wonder. It’s not what you thought you would find, and now you’re more curious than ever. +++
