Dönnhoff Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spätlese 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Aroma!! Cherry blossom and peppermint. Oh man, this is another level of seriousness from this vineyard – it could be Christoffel’s 1-star Würzgarten Auslese, for all its mirabelle and stayman-apple; amazingly saturated, as if a fragrant forest wind were blowing over your basket of apples; length like a freight train with 200 cars as you sit waiting at the crossing. Get out, eat one of those apples, go buy some flowers for your sweetie. SOS: 2 (8-25 years) AVAILABLE IN MAGNUMS: PLEASE INQUIRE

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.

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

An incredibly aromatic Riesling that's full of white cherries, apples and fresh peppermint leaf. As always, delicate with amazing concentration, and the sweetness level is just right.

An incredibly aromatic Riesling that's full of white cherries, apples and fresh peppermint leaf. As always, a delicate Riesling with amazing concentration. The sweetness level is just right and clearly makes a winner for the cellar if you're the patient type.
