Nahe Riesling Estate, Weingut Hermann Donnhoff 2011

The fruit comes as always from the Oberhauser Felsenberg vineyard. This has brilliant lift and vibrancy in this vintage to go along with the ripe flavors. There is no question that Helmut Donnhoff is one of the elite producers of Riesling. His genius is evident in how unbelievably good his Estate Riesling always is. This time, the 2011 is so wonderfully dry and vibrant, showing good complexity. Very fresh. So aromatic. Quite persistent. Very polish and exuding a lot of charm. One of the greatest values on the planet.

"Ripe quince, apple and cassis with wet stone and alkaline overtones inform Donnhoff's 2011 Riesling (as usual, from Oberhauser Felsenberg), a significantly juicier, clearer, and more charming effort than this year's corresponding Gutsriesling trocken. Hints of apple pip and nut oil piquancy add to the invigoration of a sustained, succulent, subtly sweet finish. This should remain delightfully versatile for at least half a dozen years." 88/100 David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
