Description

Characterful Riesling from the steeply sloping vineyards of the middle Nahe region. The vines grow in stony, weathered volcanic soils of porphyry and melaphyr in particular, with certain amounts of slate and quartzite. Age of vines 15 - 30 years. 100% selective hand harvest. Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats.

Tasting note

Delightful off-dry Riesling with nuanced natural sweetness and sophisticated acidity.

About the producer

Gault Millau German ‘Winemaker of the Year’ in 1999, Helmut Dönnhoff has now relinquished the reigns of the estate to his equally dedicated and talented son, Cornelius. This is the most highly regarded cellar in the entire Nahe Valley and is deservedly thought of as one of the finest Riesling producers in the world. Helmut and Cornelius are convinced that their recent vintages show the power, intensity and minerality for which their wines have become so renowned.



Jancis Robinson (Purple Pages jancisrobinson.com):

The QbA bottling, described as 'fruchtig'. TA 8 g/l, RS 29 g/l. Richer and riper on the nose than the Höllenpfad Riesling trocken. Medium sweet but balanced. Creamy in the mouth thanks to the fruit ripeness but still deliciously fresh. Reasonably persistent too. Points: 16. Date Tasted: 07/05/2019
