I recently had my first experience with one of Donnhoff's wines - a 2000 Hermannshohle Auslese that showed few signs of being from a relatively poor vintage (aside from slightly low acidity, compared to most other German Rieslings I've had) and blew me away with each sip. Since then I've kept my eye out for more, particularly his Spatlesen which I've heard a lot about.
A local retailer has stock of a handful from 03 and 04 at quite reasonable prices. Wines are: 2003 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese 2004 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese 2004 Schlossbockelheim Felsenberg Riesling Spatlese 2004 Schlossbockelheim Kupfergrube Riesling Spatlese
Was wondering if anyone has experience with these wines, and could recommend one of the four to start off with to introduce myself to Donnhoff's Spats.
