Pretty great now but I’ll try to give my second bottle at least 10 years in the cellar

2013 Magnum 1.5ml Donnhoff Spatlese NK

This wine tastes incredible from the double bottle. I’m amazed how much better it shows compared to the 750ml. Exploding with tropical fruit flavors and rich, juicy pear. Strong and pleasant aroma of petrol, spice along with the exotic fruits. Great amount of depth and layers of complexity. Very easy to drink. 11/28/19

Few things in the world are better than an aged Donnhof Spatlese. Lemony liquid stone and honey.

Outstanding... would have been Wine of the Night if the competition wasn't so stiff. On a side note, I don't really think this wine has a drinking window. It will probably last until the apocolypse.
