Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
13 %

Notes

A magnificent nose parades notes of spiced peach, wild strawberry, fresh white peach and vanilla pod. The palate has lots of powerful extract, yet finishes so utterly refined and elegant. This has it all. Long, regal and destined for a long life, firm with slate character yet open and generous with its fruit already. A great marriage of elegance and power.

Notes
Intense floral aromas, paired with pineapple, wild herbs and lemon oil. A delicate interplay of ripe citrus fruits and salty minerality sets a distinguished tone. Refined, expressive and elegant on the finish, this is a textbook Spätlese that I would enjoy having in my own cellar.

Dönnhoff

Dönnhoff

The Dönnhoff family bought a modest estate in the Nahe in the 1750s. In 1971 current owner, Helmut Dönnhoff produced his first vintage and has not looked back since. A regular on the shortlist of ‘German Winemaker of the Year’ and actual winner in 1999, Helmut’s work is helping the Nahe to take a share of the plaudits showered on the more internationally renowned German wine regions of the Mosel and the Rheingau. His cool, calm demeanour is a stark contrast to the demonic fervour with which he tends his vineyards. Only the best hand-picked fruit will do, in order to produce wines that are honest refl ections of the Riesling grape and the terroir its planted in whether it be the volcanic soils of the Kupfergrube (copper mine), the deep, cool Brücke, the slate/sandstone Hermanshöhle or the slate of the Leistenberg. Fermentation is in the traditional large old wooden casks and there is a light filtration before bottling. Some of Germany’s most intense, bewitching and mouthwatering wines, that mixes Rheingau body with Mosel minerality.
