Donnhoff Riesling Spatlese Schlossbockelheimer Kupfergrube 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and very floral on the nose with a hint of petrol, some talcum powder top notes and low dried orchard fruit tones. With air, this becomes intensely floral with notes of violet and iris. A touch soft in the mouth, this seems a bit sweeter and plumper than it may actually be. On the palate there’s a sweet, almost berry fruit quality along with sweet peach fruit on the palate. Blueberry and strawberry tones pop on the modestly sweet finish that ends with a hint of quartz on the finale. 88pts

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

Light, airy and elegant, giving all its got today even if this is somewhat small-scaled. Peak drinking window: 2008-2014.
