"Welcome to the Nahe Riesling deep end, from where you can look up and still see the sun. Enormous depth and complexity at the spectacular finish, but oh, so filigree! An absolute masterpiece of winemaking in the off-dry riesling style! Drink or hold." 99 points - James Suckling (Aug. 2020)

"The 2019 Riesling Auslese Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle is crystalline and flinty on the precise, ethereal and bright nose that represents the terroir of the Hermannshöhle beautifully and irresistibly. On the palate, this is a highly finessed, filigreed, playful and delicate Auslese with stimulating piquancy and salinity on the weightless and frisky but elegant finish. This is a fascinating Auslese with great detail and precision. Personally, I even prefer this clear and bright version (AP 17 20) to the richer, sweeter and more concentrated one that will be auctioned (AP 19 20) and possibly has the greater aging potential. However, both will live longer than I will anyway. Tasted in May 2020." 97 points - Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate, Aug. 2020)
