Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94 points

The 2014 Riesling Spätlese Oberhäuser Brücke--from Dönnhoff's famous Eiswein, Auslese and Spätlese vineyard--opens very fine, pure and coolish on the slate-like/flinty nose. Piquant, sweet and juicy on the palate, this is a highly elegant and minerally structured Spätlese with a perfectly ripe acidity. It's always the latest vineyard that has been picked. If there is a vineyard in Dönnhoff's portfolio that is similar to the Saar, it is the Brücke, and especially the 2014 vintage. It's just great.

Offers elegant notes of fresh-crushed lemon and mint to the Fuji apple, peach and pear tart flavors. The creamy, well-spiced finish is backed by lively acidity. Drink now through 2022. 180 cases imported.

Redcurrant, lime and mint waft alluringly from the glass. The luscious and delicate palate suggests jellied redcurrant and lime sorbet laced with green herbal extracts as well as mineral salts. The result is coolingly soothing yet at the same time stimulating, not least of the salivary glands. Suggestions of almond paste and candied lime peel tug the long finish in a confectionery direction but without primary juiciness or refreshment being denied.
