DÖNNHOFF Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese 'Goldkapsel' 2015

The 2015 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel is an utterly captivating wine in this vintage. Hermannshöhle is considered to be one of the most prestigious sites in the Nahe and this wine is a testament to the level of quality which can come from this site. The soils comprised of mostly black slate mixed with extrusive igneous rock, porphyry and limestone, and these intense mineral components certainly reflect in the wine, as they are woven together with bright citrus notes, granny smith apple, floral, ginseng and saline notes all coming together in the glass. This displays remarkable balance and precision with striking purity and beautiful ripe fruit framed by vibrant acidity that leaves your mouth watering. This is without a doubt one of the most impressive young wines I have tasted from this vintage, and while this is simply irresistible now, I expect it to age gracefully for decades to come.
