WTN: Double D(onnhoff)

by David M. Bueker » Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:06 am

Salil and I drank two Donnhoff Spatlesen this evening with a meal of Dal, Dal and more Dal.

1999 Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spätlese
In a word: balance. Nothing out of place here. Honey coated peaches that persist through a gorgeous, caressing finish. Not a wine for fans of electric Riesling, but a wine of grace and beauty.

2001 Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spätlese
Vibrant red and yellow fruit. Fantastic density and persistence. More classically styled, but not necessarily prettier than the Hermannshohle. It just has more zip.

Each wine was delicious in its own distinctive way. Both have tons of runway left. Delicious.

Thanks Bob. It's a lot easier when the wines are so good!
