Two Fine Bottles Of Riesling

2019 Dalheim Hubacher Riesling GG, Keller
A young, cool nose with notes of white peach, mustard seeds, chalk and grass. Very crisp, pure and fine, but oooh so young.
The taste is racy and refined with notes of white currants, peach, chrushed rocks and a penetrating acidity. Very long and, again, very young. 10+ years.
93p   (tasted 2023/11)

2010 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese, Dönnhoff
A lovely, somewhat mature nose with notes of ripe oranges, cookie dough, rain wet asphalt and rubber. Complex and fine.
The taste is rich and structured with notes of orange, mango, hay and chrushed rocks. Very, very long. 3+ years.
