As usual with Donnhoff's renditions of this site, his 2007 Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spatlese displays a profusion of flowers (buddleia, rose lily, and cherry blossom) on the nose and cherry fruit and citrus on the palate that combine for an irresistible charm offensive. This silken, pure Riesling is suffused not only with wafting floral perfume, but with saline, savory, scallop-like mineral notes that add to its utterly lip-smacking, saliva-inducing brand of refreshment. Here's a great example of residually sweet Riesling possessing not one gram more than needed for maximum support of its aromas and fruit flavors, so that sweetness per se is the last thing you have on your mind as you reach for the next sip. While there is no extended track record yet at this address - and perhaps never has been for a Kirschheck with this sort of balance and sheer quality - experience with analogous Donnhoff wines suggest one could hold it for at least two decades. But don't miss it now, either! (DS)
Subdued aromas of wild rose, passion fruit and wild herbs. Crisp, polished peach pit flavor is given a refreshing kick by salty minerality. Delicate and quite long, this is a very refined Spatlese. (JP)
Concentrated and built around a core of acidity, this vanilla-tinged Riesling is refined and integrated, yet seems to be withholding all its charms. The potential is in the long finish of grapefruit, peach and mineral. Best from 2011 through 2028. (BS)
