Donnhoff Riesling Spatlese Oberhauser Brucke 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2015 vintage rated 95+ points by John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2015 Brücke Spätlese is a stunning young wine and it is extremely floral in personality this year. The gorgeous bouquet delivers a great blend of pear, white cherries, wild yeasts, orange blossoms and a lovely potpourri of gentle Brücke spice tones. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, filigreed and beautifully complex, with great cut and grip, laser-like focus and a very, very long, electric finish that closes with a nice note of orange peel in reserve. This is fully ten grams per liter of acidity, buffered by somewhere around seventy grams per liter of residual sugar. It is a brilliant wine that should age for a very, very long time. 2022-2055.

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
