Notes

The magnificent Hermannshöhle has produced, in 2021, a Spätlese of great layering and an intense minerality that plays beautifully against the complex fruit on display. Only pure golden berries were used in the blend, no botrytis whatsoever. A many hued Spätlese with myriad flavours of apple, stone fruits, and layer upon layer of fine slate. High definition, full of promise, this is one to stick away for a few years.

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.
