    April 26, 2020 - Second Dönnhoff of the week albeit the last was a GG! 5yrs since my last (half) bottle but could have been yesterday.
    Pineapple core: restrained, clean botrytis-free sweetness and perfect touch of acidity for balance. No diesel. A brilliant fresh but concentrated simple wine and another seemingly immortal riesling. Perfect accompaniment with our strawberry and blueberry Pavlova.
    Now and till 2024 (and probably well beyond).

    February 2, 2019 - #16-00, 8.5% abv. From half-bottle. A bit of a weaker vintage, for sure, with the rot here showing a little bit dirty. Fairly dark in colour, though nothing here really points to poor storage. There's a hint of apricot jam on the nose, as well as some caramel and spice. The palate's attack is brilliant, promising lots of sweetness and complexity, but the midpalate and finish seem to taper off, and there's a little bit of unclean rot here, but overall, this is still a splendid bottle of auslese.

    March 10, 2018 - Not impressed by this - the most disappointing wine I've had from Donnhoff in some time. The aromatics are pretty, offering plenty of bright fruit, honey, and spice, but the palate is hollow and flat, showing little in terms of either depth or energy. It feels soft and creamy in the manner of some of the weakest '99s I've had, with very little complexity.

    March 10, 2018 - Indianapolis IV; 3/9/2018-3/11/2018 (Indianapolis, IN): #16-00, 8.5% abv. From half-bottle. To be sure, this isn't a strong vintage, and I think it shows on the midpalate when this hollows out a bit. But at the same time, the light, ethereal quality of Dönnhoff is on full display here. The attack here is ripe and powerful, and the finish is lifted and light (the weak midpalate notwithstanding).

    September 9, 2017 - #16-00, 8.5% abv. From half-bottle. Oxidized enough that this wasn't too pleasant to drink.
