95 points "The 2004 Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Auslese is blazingly bright in the nose, with tropical fruit richness allied to bright citrus and tart red raspberry notes. In the mouth there is sharpness and brightness as well as a complex dynamic of mango, pink grapefruit, red raspberry and pungent spice and mineral saltiness. This lacks the delicacy or serenity of so many of Donnhoff’s best wines, but in its jazz-like syncopation of flavors and the almost jarring juxtaposition of blazingly bright citricity with massive density, offers an exciting personality all its own."

"95+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "I mentioned how impressed I had been last year with the brilliance of the 2011 Hermannshöhle Grosses Gewächs to Herr Dönnhoff, and he suggested it would be fun to taste it again after sampling the 2012 version--which made for a very interesting comparison indeed. I gave a very, very slight nod to the more extroverted 2011, but the 2012 is very, very close in potential. The 2012 Hermannshöhle Grosses Gewächs offers up a young and stunning aromatic blend of tart apple, pink grapefruit, a touch of rosemary, petrol, slate, wild yeasts, smoky overtones and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very precise, with a rock solid core, crystalline minerality, brisk acids and stunning length and grip on the snappy finish. A great wine in the making! 2020-2045+. (Mar/Apr 2013)" 95+ points Fine Wine Review: "Last of the GGs, the Hermannshöhle GG is entirely from slate soils. The wine shows minerality with great finesse and it is succulent but light. All it needs is time. (Issue #142; 2014)" 95 points (18.5/20), Decanter: "The very essence of minerality, from steep grey slate slopes with volcanic elements. Underlying the youthful complex of wild flowers, tart citrus and orange blossom is a powerful core of crystalline minerality, very long and concentrated. Drin: 2014-2030. Alcohol 13.5%. (Dec 2014)" " Best 2015-2030
