Dönnhoff Kreuznacher Krötenpfuhl Riesling Spätlese 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Just brilliant Riesling with sharp mineral cut, a touch of green herb playing off the white peach and pineapple fruit and a long finish. great acid.sugar balance kept this lively and juicy. This is a particularly intense bottling. 92pts

H. Dönnhoff:
A Nahe estate - and one of the top performers. Not many estates outside the Mosel receive as much attention as those within it, but if there are any exceptions then perhaps Dönnhoff is one. The estate, which is over 12 hectares in size, has been in the Dönnhoff family since 1750, and is currently run by Helmut Dönnhoff.

A Nahe estate - and one of the top performers. Not many estates outside the Mosel receive as much attention as those within it, but if there are any exceptions then perhaps Dönnhoff is one. The estate, which is over 12 hectares in size, has been in the Dönnhoff family since 1750, and is currently run by Helmut Dönnhoff. The Dönnhoffs own vines in only the top vineyards of the Nahe Valley. These vineyards are sited in several nearby villages, namely Niederhäuser (Hermannshöhle), Oberhauser (Brucke), Schloßböckelheimer (Felsenberg and Kupfergrube), and Norheimer (Kirschheck and Dellchen). The vineyards are principally slate or volcanic soil, and are planted with Riesling and also some Burgundian varieties. Read less

Light nose of citrus and tropical fruits. It's off dry, crisp and refreshing -- love this wine.

A beautiful Reisling - crisp acidity balanced by a little residual sugar and an intense level of concentration, make this very rich, powerful, fruity wine an absolute winner

It's possible that Spätlese Rieslings are the estate's best. This example is ripe, tangy, and full of concetrated mineral, which takes the wine to a new level of beauty and complexity. In a word, pristine.
