Hermann Dönnhoff Riesling Tba Gk Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle 1994

Winemaker's Notes:

Gold Cap. AP# 01595. We'll confess that we cannot find any notes for this wine in our old issues of Tanzer, Parker, etc. However, for what it's worth, we just located a very recent note from a Danish wine blogger named Henrik Ehlers, but here it is (tasted May 22, 2009): Light yellow color. Powerful nose with greater elegance than compared to the Prüm next to it. Here is apple pie, fig and cinnamon. In the mouth, this is close to perfect. Fantastic backbone and a super viscosity, in which you can also feel the exquisite sweetness. Finish without end. A wine you can chew on forever. 96 points

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

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
