Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese 2017

99 James Suckling
(9/19/2018) "Most people who drink wine know what a ripe peach tastes like. However, this wine gives you a completely new appreciation of the meaning of the word "peach". Beyond that, it possesses subtlety that is extremely rare anywhere in the world of food and wine. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Absolutely delicious now, but could be held for decades."

(6/2017) "Great interplay of creaminess and raciness, and there's the classic cassis note of this site with a great mineral freshness. Very long and pure. Try to live clean, take regular exercise and hope you'll be around when it's fully mature."

(6/2017) "A moment of total clarity that will stay with you as long as you live (assuming you like it). Sleek as a marathon runner with a breathtaking herbal-mineral freshness at the finish. Has decades of potential ahead of it."

Winemaker's Notes
92 Wine Advocate
(2/2013) "'You with your (expletive) Eiswein!' Gabi told me when we left these grapes hanging," relates Donnhoff, and in fact his 2011 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Eiswein was another of those that threatened to disrupt the Christmas holidays, and when that didn't happen threatened yet worse. Helmut and Gabi Donnhoff left for Singapore and Cornelius for the U.S. "My daughter Christina was at home," Donnhoff continues, "academically astute, loves wine, but has no idea about viticulture. On January 17, the telephone rings. 'Mama, it's going to get cold tonight. And not just a little: minus 10 (14o F.). What should I do?!' So we set-up a three-way Skype connection, helped organized everything with the pickers, monitored the situation hour-by-hour, and walked Christina through the entire cellar process." I wish I could after all that say we have here 250 liters of truly great Donnhoff Eiswein, but the 2011 vintage itself is surely responsible for any weaknesses, not the unorthodox process by which picking and pressing were managed, let alone Christina, thanks to whom the world is enriched by an amazing if slightly awkward young wine. Musk and leather; prickly radish and lemon rind; caramel apple and honey; passion fruit and mango inform an intense aromatic as well as ultra-concentrated palate performance. Unlike with so many other 2011s rendered from frozen grapes in early 2012, one can't complain here about a lack of Eiswein-like acidity - but it takes-on a somewhat detached, slightly metallic and strident edge. Perhaps this extreme wine's caramelized and animal aspects will reconcile themselves in time with its sharp citricity and radish-like sizzle, but the ways of Eiswein in the bottle are capricious."

94 Vinous, Joel Payne
(1/2012) "Bright aromas of camomile tea, orange rind and lemon oil, plus a whiff of smoky botrytis. The supple black cherry flavor is animated by finely chiseled minerality. Dense yet vibrant, this is what eiswein should be in a vintage that produced very few examples of this quality."

St.Urbans-Hof "Goldtropfchen" Piesporter Ausleses Riesling 2015

95 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2016) "Plush and fruity, with concentrated red peach, melon and apricot tart flavors that are layered with plenty of rich, spicy notes. Plush creaminess lingers with unctuous honeyed accents on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases made."

96 James Suckling
(9/19/2018) "So light and filigree with such a delicate white-peach note. Yet, behind the almost weightless exterior is enormous depth and an almost savage mineral freshness at the finish. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold."

Weingut Knauss "Zero" Wurttemberg Pinot Noir (2019) Brut 2013

93 Our Score
(3/2019) This special release from Weingut Knauss' 2013 Pinot Noir Brut "Zero" spent extra time on the lees compared to the last release and was recently disgorged in 2019. Wow, did that extra time add some serious complexity! The wine is bright and very well balanced, with a full-bodied mouthfeel, crisp and clean orchard fruits, deep minerality and an outstanding, crazy-long finish. Grab this highly limited sparkler now while you can and stash a bottle or two for your next New Year's Eve party!

Leitz Rudesheimer Berg Roseneck Katerloch Riesling GG 2014

95 Vinous, David Schildknecht
(5/2016) "White peach, mirabelle and lemon are pungently mingled with lavender, lemon peel, iris and ocean spray in a head-turning aromatic array that surges from the glass. Silken in feel and ultra-bright, the animating palate impression introduces a mouthwatering impression of oyster liquor while preserving wafting inner-mouth perfume. A buoyant, penetrating, consummately refreshing finish is at once concentrated yet subtle in its complexity. That this wine was refused Grosses Gewachs status for being 'too light' speaks volumes about - though hardly speaks well of - the entire Grosses Gewachs project to date and the way in which that imprimatur gets assigned. At 12.5% alcohol, this can hardly be called alcoholically light wine. Was it perhaps the wine's lift, filigree detail, animation or shameless pandering to human thirst and sensual longing that disturbed the judges? Drinking Window: 2016 - 2028"
