Oberhauser Brucke Beerenauslese H. Donnhoff Nahe 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: 'The discretely sheltered Brucke vineyard is the smallest and probably<br/>the most famous in the whole Nahe; its combination of slate and loess allied<br/>to a steep aspect and proximity to the river, always guarantee some<br/>of the most complex wines of the vintage. The minute yields for this<br/>Beerenauslese, allied to the botrytis in the grapes and the extraordinary<br/>Oeschle level of 135, all adds up to intense tropical power, unparalleled<br/>freshness and intense concentration' <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR-Buyer)<br/><br/>

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

Donnhoff's 2006 Kreuznacher Krotenpfuhl Riesling Spatlese smells of pear, yellow cherry and honeysuckle. With luscious, honeyed richness and textural plushness, yet bright fresh fruit, invigorating salinity and mineral pungency, and terrific penetration, this kaleidoscopically dynamic wine could keep you occupied for a long time. I would anticipate up to two decades cellaring. RP
