    ($82) Tantalizing aromas of papaya, sweet herbs and incense. Discreet but intense black cherry fruit rises from the mid-palate, accompanied by brilliant acidity. Animated and finely spiced, with a deep, long finish. I may be underrating this.

    Bright and expressive, evoking apricot, nectarine and orange, with accents of sweet corn and vanilla custard. If the flavors were colors they would be neon, like a Pucci print.

    Gardenia, peony, and resinous herbs in the nose of Donnhoff's 2007 Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese give way to a palpably extract-rich palate of vibratory intensity, suffused with stony, saline, and tactile suggestions of mineral matter, yet at the same time rich orchard fruits. If the Krotenpfuhl was painted with water colors, the medium here is definitely oil, exhibiting both dynamic and intricate brush work as well as dense layering. This masterpiece - picked simultaneously with the corresponding Grosses Gewachs - was only beginning to show its depth in the spring and needed almost six months in bottle to really shine forth. Take as long as fate permits you to savor this; I can't imagine it disappointing a quarter century or more from now.

    Very fine and pure on the nose. Really sings and soars and swoops in the mouth like a bird - definitely airborne. Wonderful stuff. Stands out.J&B ib œ130 (per 6 bottles)

Making a strong case for the superiority of Nahe to its Mosel competition, Donnhoff crafts Rieslings of presence, structure, and indescribable complexity. After several years of vineyard management, Helmut is the latest in a long line of Donnhoffs to oversee winemaking at the estate, founded in 1750. His vineyard portfolio includes the best plots in the most renowned vineyards in the area, and of the 20 hectares under vine, roughly 80% are planted to Riesling. The Donnhoff style is set apart by its fullness and richness, inspiring exalted poetic lauding from critics and loyalists alike.
