Herm. Donnhoff 1989er Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese Nahe

Rich golder/orange color. Petillance develops.

Fruity peach, apricot, tangerine smell, hints of diesel bus exhaust.

Off-dry peach flavor, ripe and rich, some petillance. Fruit sweetness is wonderfully matched with acid.

Proof that good Riesling ages as well as any white. I'm in awe of how much a fresh and fruity Riesling can improve in 20 years or so, even in a Spatlese(!) I have a few more bottles, so I'll see about it again in a few years more.
