Donnhoff Riesling Oberhauser Brucke Eiswein 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

99 points Fine Wine Review: The Oberhäuser Brücke Eiswein was harvested on 17 January 2012 -- a relatively rare Eiswein in this vintage. Helmut was in Singapore on that day and his son, Cornelius was in Canada. As a result, they had to give instructions for picking over the telephone and a not insignificant cost. But the resulting wine is nothing short of glorious. The wine is crystalline in the nose with pure, light, crystalline essence-of-Riesling flavors on the palate and great length. (Issue #138; 2013)

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.

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
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
