Dönnhoff Hermannshöhle GG Riesling 2009

Ratings on Delectable

Eric Guido Delectable Pro

The 2009 Donnhoff Hermannshohle is rich and ample in the glass, showing sweet peaches and pear, with hints of kiwi, honeysuckle, and white smoke.  It races across the palate with precision and poise, delivering mineral-tinged orchard fruits, perfectly balancing weighty textures and ripeness with an acid-mineral thrust. The finish is long and floral, complemented by lingering flavors of lime and green apple with cheek puckering tension. Wow!

Hey everyone! Riesling is sweet, crappy quality and overpriced! Don't buy any! (Ok, now that the people who don't like Riesling are gone...damn. Stellar. Tremendous producer. Outstanding vineyard. Wish I had a case to watch evolve over twenty-plus years. Wow. Can't get enough.)

As classy and classic as it gets. Needs another 20 years to start really singing.

Powerful dry extract. Rich orchard fruits. Light petroleum. Has the presence of an Auslese without the sugar. The richness gives a sense of sweetness, but this is bone dry.
