2016 Niederhauser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese, Dönnhoff, Nahe

Nice nose, more exotic fruit than the Kirschheck, lovely tension and depth. Fine tension, so clean, the fruit is so well defined. Here, in Helmut’s words, “the whole orchestra is playing correctly”. Slight phenolic character, beautiful small red fruit, no botrytis. This is ethereal and fine, and beautiful balance. Long and saline, and a touch of mint and basil on the finish. So so so gorgeous.

2016 Niederhauser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese, 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.
