Donnhoff Riesling Roxheimer Hollenpfad Trocken 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

90+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2015 Höllenpfad Trocken is another very strong effort, but the wine is a bit more bound up in its youthful structure today than the Kahlenberg and will want a year or two longer in the cellar to start to blossom. The primary bouquet delivers scents of grapefruit, lemongrass, wild yeasts, dried flowers, a touch of the vintage's botanical overtones and gentle smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nascently complex, with a very solid core, brisk acids and fine backend mineral drive on the long and well-balanced finish. A lovely bottle that will need a bit of time in the cellar to start to drink with generosity. 2020-2050. (Mar/Apr 2016)

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
