The 2013 Hermannshöhle Auslese from Weingut Dönnhoff is another absolutely monumental example of the vintage. The wine is very heavily glazed, but once again, the absolutely pristine nature of the botrytis in the Dönnhoff wines gives this wine a clarity and refinement that is very rare with such heavily glazed wines. The gorgeous bouquet is a stunning mix of sweet grapefruit, tangerine, candied violets, great minerality, citrus zest and a very gentle note of petrol. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and the most filigreed of these three amazingly beautiful Auslesen, with a great core of fruit, ripe, electric acids, seamless grace and beauty on the backend and a very, very long and magical finish. A great, great wine in the making! (Drink between 2022-2065)
The 2013 Riesling Auslese Niederhauser Hermannshohleovely is clear and piquant on the pure nose displaying lime and grapefruit aromas in a very subtle way. Really sweet and piquant on the palate, this is a thrillingly salty and persistently minerally wine of great expression and concentration (120 Oe!) and length - an Auslese monument of great expression and joy. It is enormously piquant. (SR)
Bright and crisp on the nose, with candied peach, lemon oil and acacia honey aromas complemented by a whiff of brown spice botrytis. The lusciously sweet tropical flavors maintain a remarkable delicacy in spite of the wine's richness and depth. The long, glossy finish is underscored by slate and refined spiciness. This is without any doubt one of the monumental Ausleses of the 2013 vintage. (JP)
Balanced, with good focus to the juicy peach, apple and melon flavors, all supported by fresh acidity and lively spiciness. Hints of cream and anise show on the finish. Drink now through 2035. (KM)
