2012 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese Nahe

SKU #1155872 93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2012 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Spätlese from Weingut Dönnhoff is a beautiful wine in the making, wafting from the glass in a complex and very pure and elegant mélange of pear, white cherries, orange zest, slate, a touch of petrol, bee pollen and violets. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long, pure and nicely reserved, with a fine core, ripe acids and superb length and grip on the very refined and youthful finish. 93+ Inner quote mark (5/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Juicy, with lively apple, peach and lemon curd flavors, supple and spicy. The light finish offers honey cream notes, accented by hints of sage. An elegant and restrained style. (KM) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Seems odd to describe a wine as liquid but this is molten terroir. Still very youthful and even with a hint of fermentation about it but it is likely to triumph in the longer term. 18/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2013)
