Delicious. Putting on some weight and petrol over the apricot, acacia, ginger, carrot and green plum on the nose and palate. Quite bright and lightweight. Still in its infancy.

2011 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel. Despite my appreciation for Riesling, I have not posted many bts here with this grape. The reason being it needs time, so I am waiting more years ro start drinking them. This btl is a good ex, could hold at least another 30 years, but I was curious. Delicious juice, less electric than 2010, but the combination of fruit, botrytis and acidity is perfect. It is calm, transcendental elixir, with Indonesian dry mango, hawaian pineaplle, smooth finish. The feeling is like tasting some fresh snow with honeysuckle. Perkekt. Die exotischen Fruchtkomponenten, die lebendige Rieslingsäure und die Mineralität verbinden sich zu einer Einheit die richtif Spass macht.

2005- Med gold color, bright and crystalline. Light petrol and lychee aromas. Tart green apples and pears with wet stones; very precise. Needs many more years.

Without peer. This is sublime and a wine that shows a touch of salinity with plenty of heady Hermannshöle notes.

Grand vin moelleux de chez Dönnhoff. Magnifique équilibre entre la sucrosité et la fraîcheur. Un vin d'une pureté rare.

So pure, floral and mineral. Not at all heavy

Absolutely delicious! Bought a six pack and have zero regrets. Excited to see what this does over time.

Planned on German Auslese or Moelleux Chenin. But Spatlese worked just fine with this delicious Shropshire Blue.

Already very ripe with lots of honey, dried apricot flavours. Medium acidity, nice mouthfeel, medium finish.
