Juicy acidity and great energy, notes of ripe stone fruits, melon and lots of minerals

Stone fruit and searing acidity balancing on a razors edge.

Profound in its youth. Would love to taste again in 20-30 years

An unusual acidic dimension. Zesty and carbonic.

The 2012 Dönnhoff Hermannshöhle GG is perhaps the ripest of the GG trio. The nose is lush and expressive—imagine Ripe Bosc pear and golden apple trees near a hedgerow of old-fashioned roses, add a dash of lanolin and citrus. On the palate, it's rich and incredibly sumptuous, with weighty glycerol and densely layered orchard fruit. The minerality is focused on the sides of the mouth, creating a pleasant, vibrant border. As with the other GGs the finish is intense and lengthy.
