2005 Donnhoff Norheimer Kirschhek Spatlese ($37)
Shane’s Notes

This is a stunning Riesling. You could age this one for another ten years but it is drinking just fine right now (if you like them young). It is sweet but the sweetness never overpowers the flavors. The palate is vibrant with tangy flavors of citrus (lemon and orange) and stone fruits. There is a slight spritziness reminiscent of Mosel Rieslings and of course, there is plenty of minerality.
