The 2009 Donnhoff Hermannshohle is rich and ample in the glass, showing sweet peaches and pear, with hints of kiwi, honeysuckle, and white smoke. It races across the palate with precision and poise, delivering mineral-tinged orchard fruits, perfectly balancing weighty textures and ripeness with an acid-mineral thrust. The finish is long and floral, complemented by lingering flavors of lime and green apple with cheek puckering tension. Wow! — 6 days ago
17.5. Wonderfully light and variegated, perfect balance, M+ length. Could be aperitif but also excellent with Indian (last night) and white asparagus (lunch today). — 2 days ago
Crystalline fresh peach, pineapple, and guava. Great acidity that makes you want to keep taking another sip. So good. — 15 days ago
Smoky, like a struck match. Good lemon and orange on the palate, slight lime brown sugar mojito scent, lots of rocks. Melon, cantaloupe or honeydew. Some cucumber. Smooth acid, lots of it, round and lush moving along the cheeks. Mint. A honeyed finish. A bit out of balance, but good still. I’ve got the windows open, getting ready to eat some sushi. It’s a good night to be stuck in an apartment in Brooklyn with the right supplies.
Gets better after a day open in the fridge. Integrates and becomes slightly sweet balanced on a sharp knife edge of acid minerals and swimming pool vibes. — 25 days ago
Nose has that almost creamy seamlessness. Some green apple skin? As this opens minerals from 1,000 year old apricot pits. Apricot flowers. Elegant. Intense Apricot perfume. REALLY pretty.
Palate is very mineral. Classic Schneider. Lovely.
