- The Wine
A pale golden yellow, with an extremely clear/pure appearance. A fruity nose of white peaches, apricots, cress, lemon, lime, minerals and a hint of smoke. On the fresh lively palate there is a good fruit-acid framework, with the balance tipping towards the mineral but with good grape and some tropical fruit flavours (I detected mango), and under-ripe melon. Good length. Excellent stuff, will not disappoint.
Ben says (August 2016): If you don't like this wine then give it to me! What a wonderful example of mature wine that remains true to the grape and the region. Nick's 2004 write-up above is still accurate although I would think that the wine is smoother than it was back then. This really is a Riesling lover’s dream. It is a great pity that we only have a few bottles left and that this is the last of our wine from Donabaum.
