    July 12, 2021 - 92-93pts. Very young of course, with some oak still not fully incorporated. Beautiful minerality, but I'd like a touch more of acidity to balance its residual sweetness. Does get better with air, as expected, and is never cloying. Peaches, some white chocolate, a hint of very ripe mangoes, and apricot. I'd wait 5-10 years to open another bottle.

    October 20, 2020 - Clear straw color. More muted nose than I expected but it was cold. Livened up as it warmed. Honeysuckle, honey, apple, orange, minerals. Glorious in the mouth. Too young , but superb mouth feel and balance. Honeyed nectar with the slightest hint of petrol.. Long complex finish. One of the best German Rieslings I have had.

    April 25, 2020 - The zip of a young Donnhoff. Ample acidity. Citrus and tropical fruit salad. Unfortunately, it’s lacking in minerality.

    December 7, 2019 - I normally only drink Mosel Spatlese Riesling wines with about 7 to 15 years of age on them. When I buy multiples of a wine, I always open one just to test sample the handling/storage of the wines. This wine is extraordinary for such a young wine! Balance and white peaches. You can smell and taste white peaches, this is a first for me.

    November 28, 2019 - Had at Thanksgiving Dinner, double decanted about 6 hours before dinner. Tasted along the way. This is just an outstanding wine that kept getting better and better, so much so that I ordered 2 more cases. Great wine to hold on to.
