Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2011 Leistenberg is really a very classic example of Kabinett this year. The deep, pure and vibrant nose offers up a very floral mélange of apple, tart orange, complex slate tones, petrol, orange blossoms and lilacs. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and lively, with lovely filigree, fine mid-palate intensity, snappy acids and superb length and grip on the dancing finish. A lovely, lovely Kabinett. 2012-2030. (Mar/Apr 2012)

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

Very juicy, with plenty of apricot, peach and pear in the mix. Offers a refreshing creaminess, delivering sweet cherry notes that extend on the delicate finish. Drink now through 2020.

Lichee and lemon oil on the nose. Delicate passion fruit brightened by a salty twang. Refreshing acidity adds a touch of femininity to the spicy finish.
