Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Kirschheck Donnhoff 93w&s Premier 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Four days after opening, this wine was still going strong, plush enough to match the fat gilding a slice of smoked duck breast and direct enough to cut right through it. Its mouthwatering minerality is as smooth as the slate in this vineyard, with light herbal notes that give extra lift to the cherry pit and peach flesh flavor...93" W&S 12/12

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 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
