Tasting Notes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Donnhoff's 2007 Riesling Spatlese Felsenturmchen once again reflects a particular (cooler, stonier) portion of the Schlossbockelheimer Felsenberg high up and well back from the Nahe. Gentian, red currant, citrus oils, and a whiff of smoke in the nose usher in a rich, sappy, subtly creamy yet tremendously refreshing palate in which tropical mango and citrus meet Northern European red currant. A lick of salt adds invigoration to the long finish. This misses the dazzling complexity and subtlety of the Krotenpfuhl or the ethereal florality of the Kirschheck, but it is built to last..." 90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of tropical fruit, apple and hot stones. On the palate, it's all mineral, with a savory, saline character and juicy texture. Fine balance and length, though more subtle on the finish than on the attack. Drink now through 2025." (Web only, 2009) According to importer Terry Theise: "From a separate parcel in the Felsenberg right below the tower, this wine was often sent to auction and so we seldom saw it. Not since the 2003 have I tasted this miraculous combination of lightness and material density of fruit and depth; this is more yielding than the whiskery rugged 2006; indeed it swoons in a kind of trance; flavor in a penumbral spectre you sense rather than see; at once both entirely scrutable - you could isolate all its nuances if you insisted - and also ethereal and fleeting. No one on earth is happier than me right now."
