Schneider Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese

 Schneider Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese

For over 100 years, the Hermannshöhle has been rated the best site in the Nahe and is therefore the bench mark by which all other vineyards in the region are judged. This site takes its name from a small mine (Höhle which actually means “cave”) in the middle of the hillside. Hermann comes Herms, the Greek guardian of messengers and travelers, which might indicate that at one point this was an area of ancient worship. The soils are mostly black slate mixed with extrusive igneous rock, porphyry and limestone.

Review:
Where is the blue cheese (Forme d’Ambert!). A seriously concentrated Spätlese with an entire spectrum of stone-fruit aromas, this seductive riesling is really hard to resist, in spite of quite generous sweetness. So much power and subtlety at the long, complete finish! Drink or hold.
