One of three products of botrytis selection in this site that extended into January, the Donnhoff 2011 Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Auslese gold capsule strikingly combines custardy richness of texture and honeyed ennoblement with bright acidity; a wellspring of primary juiciness; and salinity that will milk you salivary glands for all that they are worth. Fresh orange with its candied rind; white peach jelly with piquancy of pit fruits; buddleia and lilac; passion fruit, nut pastes and vanilla cream add to the luscious allure of this remarkable libation. A faint aura of truffle and musk emerges with airing – no doubt pointing toward the extremely late picking of by then relatively mature yet still fine botrytis. Dynamically multidimensional, yet sharing with its Brucke counterpart a soothing sense of harmony, this almost endlessly fascinating as well as endlessly lingering wine deserves to be followed for three decades.

Rich golden-yellow. Exuberant aromas of cling peach, orange blossom and cinnamon embedded in honeyed botrytis. The creamy tropical fruit flavors pair nicely with the wine's elegant, understated acidity. Finishes extremely long, with ethereal depth. A great effort for the vintage. (JBP)
Creamy and rich, with concentrated baked apple and spiced pear flavors that are focused and fresh. Plush with juicy acidity lingering on the peach- and apricot-filled finish. Drink now through 2040. (KM)
