From berries selected out of the corresponding Auslese, Donnhoff's 2010 Niederhauser Hermannshöhle Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese was intended to be Beerenauslese, given 180 Oechsle and 14 grams of acidity it was evident that he had a T.B.A. on his hands ? and what a one! High-toned, penetrating aromas of maraschino, marzipan, and pungent lemon rind usher in a creamily rich yet buoyant and enervating palate loaded with quince preserves and pear nectar; honey and caramel; maraschino and white raisin. Brightness of fresh lemon and depth of nut oils emerge in the finish, the sheer abundance of material present here serving to somehow guarantee a seamless yet fruitfully tense cohabitation of this elixir's acidic with its ennobled richness, its spine and vivacity with its creamy opulence. This ought to be worth following for a half century or more. (DS)
Rich golden yellow. Exuberant aromas of caramelized peach, quince preserves and oyster shell on a bed of honeyed botrytis. Incredibly dense, creamy richness is paired with a juicy, almost salty tanginess. In spite of its depth and weight, this wine remains delicately elegant on the impressively long finish. (JP)
Very different on the nose from Emrich-Schönleber’s Monzinger Halenberg TBA. Slightly floral but a strong orange marzipan aroma of botrytised grapes. And yet there is still a stony note even in all that sweet richness. Gleaming honey and lemon – both dense/concentrated and yet full of energy. Fabulous purity. 18.5/20 points. (JH)
