2010 Niederhausen Hermannshöhle Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken, Nahe, Germany

Tight, cool, clearly vegetable to herbaceous, a hint of green citrus stone fruit nose with floral and vegetable nuances and quite distinct minerality. Clear, fine, juicy, cool, bright fruit, still very fresh, present acidity, slightly covering tannin, clearly vegetable, a little bit celery like tones, persistent on the palate, firm and very mineral, very delicate yeasty aromas, good depth, with air some candy and wax as well as emerging sweetness, but after a day becomes even finer, very good, firm, clearly mineral finish with bright juice and fresh vegetable and red berry aromas. In great condition

Editor note: Translate to English Kühler und herber, dabei tiefer Zitrus-Pfirsichduft mit intensiver Mineralik und herben Kräuternoten im Hintergrund. Straff, kühl und saftig im Mund, sehr geschliffene, noch vollkommen unentwickelte Frucht, straffe, sehr feine Säure, deutliche Mineralik und wieder Kräuteraromen am Gaumen, fester Bau, tief und nachhaltig, komplex und zwingend, dabei erstaunlich elegant, beste Balance, sehr guter bis langer Abgang. Derzeit noch völlig unantastbar.
