Dönnhoff H. Riesling Spätlese Nahe Oberhäuser Brücke 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The discretely sheltered Brücke vineyard is the smallest and probably themost famous in the whole Nahe; its combination of slate and loess alliedto a steep aspect and proximity to the river, always guarantee someof the most complex wines of the vintage. The Spatlese has a delicious andpersistent peach and apricot flavour, lovely balanced acidity and a firm yetrefreshing finish." (Simon Field MW, BBR-Buyer)

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... Read more
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

The 2006 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Beerenauslese is far more viscous, oily, and honeyed than the corresponding Auslese; the raspberries have candified now, and there is a gaudy gaggle of tropical fruits partying loudly as if just next door. The seamless purity of the Auslese, for all of that wine's energy, seems almost meditative in comparison, but all the more remarkable for it. Still, this prodigious elixir is every bit as citric, bright and penetrating as the Auslese and as it matures over the coming half century it may well reveal not only further facets, but also its underlying principle of organization. Right now, one can only be in awe of its sheer energy and concentration. RP

The Dönnhoff estate offers some of the most incredibly elegant Rieslings around.

Donnhoff's 2006 Kreuznacher Krotenpfuhl Riesling Spatlese smells of pear, yellow cherry and honeysuckle. With luscious, honeyed richness and textural plushness, yet bright fresh fruit, invigorating salinity and mineral pungency, and terrific penetration, this kaleidoscopically dynamic wine could keep you occupied for a long time. I would anticipate up to two decades cellaring. RP
