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

"Fresh lemon, grapefruit, diverse red berries and buddleia hauntingly scent the Donnhoff 2008 Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spatlese and inform a palate of utmost refinement and delicacy, transparent to salt, stone, gingery spice, and floral diversity. Juicy, tart, faintly bitter suggestions of fresh pineapple add invigoration to a long, refreshing finish. This represents an unusually vivacious, incipiently complex Kirschheck with all of the seductive allure one has come to expect from this bottling. It should be fascinating to follow for 15-20 years, although it-s irresistible young. " Wine Advocate , #187 Feb 2010, David Schildknecht
