Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 

($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.

Wine Varietal: Riesling

Styles of Riesling range from bone-dry to very sweet. Riesling thrives in cooler climates with plenty of sun exposure and protection from the wind. Along the Mosel River in Germany and in France's region of Alsace, this variety has seen historic success. Riesling is also grown in Austria, Luxembourg, northern Italy, Australia, New Zealand, United States, and Canada. There are many grape names that use the term "Riesling" which are not true Riesling such as Welschriesling, Schwarzriesling, Cape Riesling, and Gray Riesling. White Riesling, also known as Johannisberg Riesling, is true Riesling. Typical descriptors for the varietal include apple, pear, peach, apricot, petrol, flint, steel, and gunmetal.
