Dönnhoff Kreuznacher Kahlenberg Kabinett 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Max Gerstl: Unglaublich, aber diese Auslese ist noch eine Spur konzentrierter als die Brücke, dabei aber ebenso filigran und raffiniert. Beat Caduff: «Intensive, explosive Frucht, duftet nach dem besten tropischen Früchtekorb, den es gibt. Am Gaumen extrem cremig mit fein gewobenem Körper, enormer Kraft und geschmeidigen Muskeln, extrem beweglich, enorm kräftig und elegant.» Helmut Dönnhoff: «Mir gefällt die Beschwingtheit der Weine.»

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

Really complexity on the nose here with an initial set of mineral, salt and gunpowder aromas that are backed up by a very bright lime candy tone. This closes slowly in the glass but offers lovely dusty slate notes. Sweet up front yet with excellent backing acidity giving this really nice cut. The fruit is fresh orchard/apricot toned on the midpalate with a nice lime squeeze finish. There is an incipient saline/mineral tone on the backend that leads to the moderately long finish. Layered and complex with excellent balance and all the components to evolve into something special. Drink 2009-2020 92pts
