Donnhoff Estate Riesling 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Essence of verbena, wintergreen, wild lavender and stoniness. But there's a creaminess on the palate and a complex mosaic of fruits that goes by too fast for you to catch; the finish is all spices and stones again. 88 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...The nose offers up a blend of apples, white cherries, minerals, sweet grapefruit and a touch of petrol. On the palate the wine is mediumbodied, fresh and vibrant, with lovely length and incipient complexity, and lovely bounce on the seamless finish. Just delicious. 2007-2015+. (Mar/Apr 2007)

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. 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
