"The 2015 Hermannshöhle Spätlese is every bit as stunning as the Brücke, but it is not quite as concentrated at the core and shows a more delicate personality out of the blocks. The glorious bouquet soars from the glass in a mélange of pear, white cherry, citrus peel, a superb base of slate minerality, bee pollen, white flowers and gentle, wild yeasts overtones. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full and very filigreed, with great focus, seamless balance and truly stunning elegance and refinement already in evidence right out of the blocks. The finish is very, very long, nascently complex and oh, so promising. It will be very interesting to follow these last two Spätlesen over the course of the unfolding decades and see if they start to dovetail a bit stylistically as the years go by. Another brilliant wine!"
