Green apples, pear drops and chamomile are in play here. Lightly off-dry with some softness and a fruity finish, but some pretty acidity crunch.
Sourced predominantly from Oberhäuser Leistenberg, this bottling as usual features a much more discreet sense of sweetness than do any of the other non-dry Dönnhoff bottlings. Lime, apple and a hint of blueberry incorporate zest, tang and crunch to enliven the subtly glossy palate, but also generate a satisfying sense of succulence. The infectiously juicy finish features crystalline stony impingements and a mouthwatering lick of salt. (DS)
The 2018 Estate Riesling Feinherb had also been bottled at the start of the week, ahead of my Thursday afternoon visit, but it was showing quite well indeed (despite having to follow-up all of those GG fireworks). This wine comes in at 10.5 percent alcohol, has acids of 8.5 grams and sports around twenty-five grams of sugar this year. The bouquet is very pretty, offering up scents of white cherries, apple, salty minerality and spring flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and juicy, with very good backend mineral tug, bright acids and lovely focus and grip on the absolutely delicious finish. Another bargain!
Richer and riper on the nose than the Höllenpfad Riesling trocken. Medium sweet but balanced. Creamy in the mouth thanks to the fruit ripeness but still deliciously fresh. Reasonably persistent too. (JH)
The 2018 Riesling (Estate) is highly aromatic and elegant on the clear, precise and flinty nose. Clear and fresh on the palate, this is an aromatic, almost dry and gripping Riesling with attractive fruit and piquant minerality. (SR)
