Top 10 Riesling Producers

3. Dönnhoff Riesling Trocken (2008)

« Prev Next » 3 of 21
Average price: $29.99 from 16 stores
Tight on the nose with some oily, raw nut notes over a base of quartz and raw quince. Bright acidity cuts down the middle of the palate but the fruit seems to struggle to stay with it, falling away to the sides in the mouth. This is lean and focused but lacks a bit of snap. A lot of green apple, citrus and unripe apricot flavors are attractive, but this also lacks a bit of length. It finishes on the dry side for a Spatlese. A bit disjointed. 88pts

  • 296832Jan Magnusson Wow! Wonderful mineral tones combined with peppar and apricots!!!!


  • 139592Sweetstuff Suprised that certain makers are not here--such as new world -- Chateau Grand Travers and Bowers Harbor, Old Mission Peninsula, Michigan, Hirtzberger, Spitz, Wachau, Austria, Willi Brundlymayer of the Kremstal, AJ Adam; Vollenweider, both from the Mosel, and how could we omit Egon Mueller and van Volxem of the Saar! This is just a short list. Each one of them makes regular world class Riesllngs, and I'm sure I've forgotten many, too.
