Dönnhoff H. Riesling Spätlese Oberhäuser Brücke 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2010 Oberhäuser Brücke Spätlese is a beautifully filigreed bottle that really shows off this great terroir. The bouquet is deep, precise and vibrant, as it soars from the glass in a mélange of blood orange, pink grapefruit, glorious minerality, citrus zest and a gentle topnote of honeycomb. On the palate the wine is medium-full, tight and racy, with lovely filigree, fine midpalate depth, bright acids and superb length and grip on the nascently complex finish. As this wine has a pretty serious girdle of acidity at the present time, it is entirely possible that it will prove to be even better than my initial note. 2016-2045. (Mar/Apr 2011)

H. Dönnhoff:

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
