2013 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese Gold Capsle, Dönnhoff, Nahe

From the intriguingly named ‘Herman’s Cave’, this wine is extraordinarily fragranced, transporting the taster at once to warm summer evenings, with grass and stone fruits on the nose mixing with a striking array of flavours on the palate: lime, tangerine, and stone fruit leading into tropical nuances. Made from Botrytis grapes, the wonderfully sweet, deeply concentrated centre is balanced with fruit of sublime purity. This is perfection.

2013 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese Gold Capsle, Dönnhoff, Nahe
Weingut Dönnhoff

Dönnhoff are based in the Nahe region of Germany, noted for its diverse soils, which are beautifully expressed in Dönnhoff’s single vineyard wines. The family winery has existed since the mid-18th century, but has reached its highest level under Helmut Dönnhoff, at the helm since 1971. Dönnhoff’s wines bear the standard for the Nahe, so often overshadowed by Mosel and Rheingau.
