($50) Fresh apple, lemon and subtly woodsy notes in the nose. Elegant and delicate in palate impression, suggesting creaminess. Wet stone, smoke and brown spices waft through a diaphanous curtain of fruit. Very long and thought-provoking, if restrained. One thought is it's not yet showing half of what it has in reserve. Potential 2 stars.

About This Producer


Making a strong case for the superiority of Nahe to its Mosel competition, Donnhoff crafts Rieslings of presence, structure, and indescribable complexity. After several years of vineyard management, Helmut is the latest in a long line of Donnhoffs to oversee winemaking at the estate, founded in 1750. His vineyard portfolio includes the best plots in the most renowned vineyards in the area, and of the 20 hectares under vine, roughly 80% are planted to Riesling. The Donnhoff style is set apart by its fullness and richness, inspiring exalted poetic lauding from critics and loyalists alike.
