2014 Norheimer Dellchen Riesling Dry Grosses Gewachs, Dönnhoff, Nahe

Where Felsenberg is linear and brooding, Dellchen is somewhat less introspective, due in part to its extremely favourable exposition directly above the banks of the river Nahe between Norheimer and Niederhausen. Hollowed out from the steeply sloping volcanic soils Dellchen is a sun trap ensuring perfect ripeness whilst retaining acidity. Pithy limes and white peach are underscored by notes of crushed oyster shells and white pepper. A truly majestic Riesling with fabulous potential.

2014 Norheimer Dellchen Riesling Dry Grosses Gewachs, 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.
