Donnhoff Hermann Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Dellchen 2005

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Pale golden yellow. Delicate aromas of orange, smoked meat and nut oil.Refined but quite discreet, even closed, today.Not at all a showy riesling, but one you need to search to find. The elegantly spicy finish offers a nice interplay of sweet fruits ... Stephen Tanzer. A Riesling wine from Nahe in Germany. 2005 Donnhoff, Hermann Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Dellchen 750ml

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

Pale gold. Ripe apple and lime and forest floor scents mingle with a hint of spicy botrytis. Rich, unctuous tropical fruit flavors pervade the palate. Finishes with creamy depth and smoky spices. Obviously an auslese in style. Stephen Tanzer. A Riesling wine from Nahe in Germany. 2004 Donnhoff, Hermann Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Dellchen 750ml

Fresh, elegant and backed by a lively structure, this Riesling balances its fruit and acidity deftly, with a lingering finish. Peach and mineral are the main notes, with an underlying citrus tone.

This Spatlese is extraordinary, hovering in that zone bordering perfection in which wines touch the soul. A wine that demands introspection, the 2002 Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Dellchen reveals enormous ripeness in its slate and pear aromas. Light t... Robert Parker.
