Donnhoff Schlossbockelheimer Felsenberg Riesling Spatlese Felsenturmchen 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Scents of sage, resin, smoky black tea, and struck flint lend a site-typical reductive overtone to Donnhoff’s 2011 Schlossbockelheimer Felsenberg Riesling Spatlese, then pungently accent, and in so doing underscore the sheer lusciousness of Persian melon, mango, and blueberry. Polished, expansive and satin-textured yet insistently vibrant, there is a terrific persistence of both this wine’s almost gaudily ripe fruit and its pronouncedly pungent mineral and herbal elements. A lick of salt adds to the already mouthwatering appeal of a beauty that should not fade but remain utterly engaging for 20 (if not more) years...94" WA 02/13

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
