Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese 2007

Pale golden colour, closed nose. Soft peach and lime fruit with a ripe character and spice notes. Fairly sweet on the palate combination of pear and peach yet good acidity and minerality.

Ripe, bright nose with a lot of stone fruit with a spicy tickle to it. Clean ripe, lovely sweetness and very good acidity, complex and dense wine, pineapple, mango, fruity.

Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Hochgewächs trocken 2006
Hochgewächs referring to a high quality QbA Riesling wine which must have a higher Oechsle and higher general alcohol level as well. The finishing wine must also have a higher density and weight judged by a panel.
Pale lemon green colour, with a light citrus and lime note. Dry, crisp and refreshing. Clean citrus and lime drive with a good minerality, nice one.

Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Spätlese 2006 Edition 50:50
Quite a good sound on the nose, handsome full of stone fruit and a spicy juicy lime note. Fullish and with good intensity. Nahe, style with fresh acidity and mineralithy, fresh lime note with hand on minerality and good structure.

Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Auslese Junior 2006
Fresh and great zip on the palate with a light lemon and lime note. Good acidity very ripe and superbly mixed, fun wine with good length and deepness to it. The razor sharp acidity cuts greatly through the ripe and sweet fruit.

Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Beerenauslese 2006
Golden colour with a pure botrytis on the nose very intense and good persistent style, pronounced tropical notes. Sweet attack (no wonder with 250 g/l RS), yet great acidity and plenty of fruit, rich and splendid density and high notes of tropical fruit, mango, passion, orange peel. Long and complex.

Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese 2006

Plenty of stone fruit yet sleek and a good note from the soil, minerality with a fiery spice character. There is enough sweetness in the wine yet it is well balanced with the acidity and fruit, good nerve, fairly deep and ripe finish.

Tight, closed nose. Sweet on the palate, with a very ripe and clean fruit character. Clean cut, good acidity, juicy and delicious sweetness, fairly powerful sweetness on the finish, good attack.
