Food Pairings for Dönnhoff H. Riesling Spätlese Nahe Oberhäuser Brücke
Informal note; Tasted September 2007 at the estate with Helmut Dönnhoff: A rich, almost auslese-level bottle, with a very lissome, almost gulpable character; rivers of cherry juice running down the throat. Very impressive. Helmut gave Barbara a bottle as we were headed out!
External Reviews for Dönnhoff H. Riesling Spätlese Nahe Oberhäuser Brücke
The 2006 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese rises to the challenge with a performance of unforgettable delicacy refinement and elegance without stinting on honeyed richness. Gardenia and heliotrope offer a heady bouquet sprinkled with framboise and lemon. Red raspberry and quince preserves lemon salt and slate mingle on a creamy seemingly weightless palate in a harmonious colloquy tartness folded into honey and vanilla cream richness. Sensational dynamism penetrating length and mysteriously mineral savory depth (there is already an unexpected note of bitter chocolate) await you in a bottle of this Brucke over the next quarter century. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Precisely balanced, with a rich texture surrounding notes of peach, grapefruit, red currant and vanilla custard. Its harmonious and picks up mineral and a lively cut on the finish. Drink now through 2028.Another wine new this year chez Donnhoff, its label depicting a stone tower and with the words 2006 Riesling Spatlese Felsenturmchen on the back, reflects one microclimatically distinct portion of the Schlossbockelheimer Felsenberg. Smoke-, and black tea-tinged cassis, black raspberry, and blueberry in the nose lead to an envelopingly silken-textured, luscious, succulent, palate loaded with ripe berries and refreshing lime. Hints of smoke, crushed stone, pepper, and black tea add interest to the long, creamy finish. For all of its opulence, this has delicacy, refinement, and riveting minerality, and it actually achieved a very slightly lower must weight than the "regular" Felsenberg. "I almost had a bad conscience bottling this," quips Donnhoff, "but the old comrades - Brucke and Hermannshohle - need to face up to the challenge."
"The discretely sheltered BrÃ¼cke 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)
