2011 Niederhausen Hermannshöhle Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken, Nahe, Germany

Firm, deep, relatively cool, clearly vegetal fragrance reminiscent of artichokes and broccoli with light yellow fruity aromas, yeasty traces and intense, almost dominant minerality. Ripe, compact, sweetish, very bright fruit, again clearly vegetable aromas and enormous minerality, certain sweetness, which the wine does not necessarily need, lasting on the palate, firm acidity, good depth and substance, hinted at candied pulses on the palate, a hint of blueberries, very good, firm, sweetish and juicy and again a gripping mineral finish. Still young

Editor note: Translate to English Fester, getrocknet-pflanzlicher bis kräuteriger, zart öliger und auch leicht erdiger Duft mit zurückhaltenden Pfirsich- und Zitrusaromen, einer Spur Hefe und deutlicher, herber, sehr kühler Mineralik. Kompakt, dicht und saftig im Mund, sehr reife Frucht mit kräuteriger Würze und intensiver Mineralik, feine, lebhafte Säure, leichter Gerbstoff, viel Griff und Substanz, noch unentwickelt und leicht gedeckt, recht komplex, leicht süßlicher Schmelz, aber auch viel Schliff, ausgezeichnete Tiefe, sehr guter bis langer Abgang. Muss reifen.
