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+
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.
Tantalizing aromas of papaya, cherry, sweet herbs and tobacco. A discreet but intense cherry flavor rises on the palate, brightened by understated acidity. Subtly spicy and long on the finish. I may be underrating this. (JP)
Such tension and vibration! Real nerve and class. Lift but substance. 18/20 points (JR)
