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.

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

"Ripe pear and quince scent the 2008 Kreuznacher Krotenpfuhl Riesling Kabinett, which then comes to the palate subtly creamy; laced with savory salinity; and with delicacy and vivacity (at 8.5% alcohol) that belie this site-s being farther downstream and hence warmer than Donnhoff-s others. Luscious pear nectar is transparent to saline and crystalline notes and alluringly tinged with red berries and vanilla. I'm still in training when it comes to Kreuznach - give me ten years, jokes Donnhoff, for whom 2008 is his third vintage with this site. But in fact not only does this wine express complete self-confidence, its 2007 predecessor (bottled as Spatlese) was one of the stand-outs in its collection. Even though I received a lot of praise for last year-s Krotenpfuhl Spatlese, remarks its author, -this Kabinett is really lovely, and I'm thinking I don't need to wait so long to pick in this site in order to best reflect its talent for residually sweet Riesling. The acids were too green at that point to have made a good trocken wine. Anyway, I practically only have Riesling; I need three or four weeks and can-t pick all of my vineyards in a day, so there has to be some place to begin, and the question is, -where will the grapes be most beautiful at that point? Enjoy this classic Kabinett over the next 12-15 years. " Wine Advocate , #187 Feb 2010, David Schildknecht
