Domdechant Werner Hochheimer Domdechaney Riesling Spatlese 2012
93 pts. Wine Enthusiast
Green floral notes and juicy, ripe white peaches perfume this complex medium-sweet Riesling. Ethereal on the palate, but penetrating with stone fruit flavors and a sunny, bright tangerine acidity. Long finish.
The historical estate is owned by Dr. Franz Werner Michel, the seventh generation of the founding family. The eighth (and possibly ninth) generation is now on the scene, as Dr. Michel's daughter, Catharina Mauritz, mother of three sons, has also become involved in the estate's management. Producing Riesling Wines since 1780, Franz Michel was awarded "White Winemaker Of The Year 2017" at the Internation Wine Challenge in London.
