Product Description

Most people who drink wine know what a ripe peach tastes like. However, this wine gives you a completely new appreciation of the meaning of the word “peach”. Beyond that, it possesses subtlety that is extremely rare anywhere in the world of food and wine. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Absolutely delicious now, but could be held for decades.” Stuart Pigott 99 points

"The 2017 Hermannshöhle Spätlese from the Dönnhoffs is also excellent this year, but it was a bit more reserved in personality at the time of my tasting and perhaps does not have quite the same precision as the Brücke this year? The bouquet offers up a superb, youthful mix of apple, a touch of blood orange, salty minerality, bee pollen and a nice touch of wild yeasts up high. On the palate the wine is focused, medium-full and racy, with a fine core, excellent focus and grip and a long, youthful and still quite primary finish. Perhaps this has just started to close down a bit from its recent bottling and will end up every bit as fine as the Brücke Spätlese in the fullness of time, but right now, I have to give a very slight edge to the above wine. That said, this is hardly disappointing, as it has enormous potential!" John Gilman 94+
