Schlossböckelheimer Felsenberg Auslese Gk Weingut Hermann Dönnhoff 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Wine Spectator: Shows fine intensity on a light-weight frame. Manages to maintain delicacy while expressing apricot, papaya, red berry and floral notes. Balanced and well-structured, this focuses a beam of fruit on the finish. Best from 2009 through 2030. 128 cases imported.

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

opened Friday for the initial taste, re-corked and tasted again Sunday. very good Friday night, stunning on Sunday. On both nights it exhibited incredible minerality, but on Friday the fruit was muted and hidden. Sunday's wine was wide open with apricot and grapefruits, wet stones and spice on a steely and balanced frame. Near perfect match for grilled sausage with dijon mustard.

nice rich, full flavors of grapefruit, melon and some stoniness. ultimately, however, lacks any kind of precision or grace. not my favorite.
