From one of the greatest Riesling producers in the world, this 2018 estate bottling is a gorgeous example of the character of Nahe Riesling. Fruit and spice intermingle with stony soil tones in an utterly charming wine. The easy-going nature of the 2018 vintage also comes through in the wine's openly inviting profile. You could easily lay this down for a while, but why wait? It's awesome now.

Stephan Reinhardt writes: "Helmut Dönnhoff can be really proud. His son Cornelius, responsible for the wines in recent years, has bottled probably the best wine series in the history of the domaine."

91 points Decanter: "This is one of the most widely distributed wines of the Dönnhoff estate in the Nahe, and it showcases their pristine, clear-cut but expressive style of Riesling. Fermented in large oak but matured in stainless steel, it once again is a celebration of vibrant citrus, lemon, lime and grapefruit but with an added bounce of juicy tropical fruit at the centre. It displays the signature Dönnhoff tautness. (AK)" (04/2019) 91 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Tonschiefer was also bottled a few days prior to my arrival at the estate, but again,...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Undoubtedly the finest 2003 Auslese I tasted is Dönnhoff’s majestic 2003 Riesling Auslese Norheimer Dellchen. Its immensely complex aromas reveals a plethora of fresh herbs, minerals, slate, and apples. On the palate, this wine reveals a depth of stupendous proportions. Powerful, yet refined, it has the ethereal qualities that mark this brilliant winemaker’s best cuvées. Combining the vintage’s sensual nature with exquisite precision and refinement, this gem displays crystalline minerals enrobed in red berries wh...

David Schildknecht writes: "The trend continues at this address (as at so many others) toward lower residual sugar among the dry wines – in Helmut Dönnhoff’s words (also familiar from other growers) “the wines are becoming more ‘puristic’” – but he sought to reassure me, “don’t worry, we aren’t going to go heating up our cellar in order to get the wines down to two or three grams...” That having been said, Dönnhoff is entirely candid concerning his fascination with how-low-can-you-go Riesling. “Often when I go back and taste my dry wines from an earlier ...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a warm parcel named after the nearby community of Birkenfeld whose nobility once owned it, the “two star” 2006 Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Spatlese smells of peach preserves, spiced apple, and root beer. It is opulently rich and creamy with honey and caramel leavened by lime citricity. While lacking the mineral interest, clarity or sense of weightlessness conveyed by this year’s “one star” Spatlese, this represents a refined expression of very pure fruit and noble rot and should be capable of at l...

Stephan Reinhardt writes of the 2017 & 2018 vintages from Kruger-Rumpf: "Luckily, the low pH levels compensated the low acidity perfectly in 2018, and it's impossible to say which of the two vintages was the greater one here. The 2018s have more power but are fascinatingly clear, whereas the 2017s are impressively concentrated. I tend to say the dry 2017s are finer than the 2018s, whereas the 2018s are bright and the better off-dry and fruity-sweet wines, but as you can see, there are exceptions, so even this is no rule. In any case, there are more 2018s...

96 points James Suckling: "The strength of this wine lies in the finesse and delicacy that creep up on you from behind. Super-fine nectarine and mandarin-orange notes. Moderate sweetness for the category makes this a great paté de foie gras wine. Very long, silky finish. Drink or hold. " (09/2018) 92 points Vinous: "“There wasn’t much botrytis this year,” relates Diel, so this bottling mostly represents healthy but super-ripe and concentrated berries. Nectarine and white peach deliver an enticing nose and luscious, brightly juicy abundance on a glossy,...

93 points James Suckling: "Stunning peach and lemon-curd character, combined with stunning freshness and elegance. Long, filigree finish. Drink now. " (11/2018) 90 points Vinous: "From the cool, high-elevation, gravelly Liebfrauenberg portion of the Altenberg Einzellage, while on paper high in residual sugar (at 45 grams namely) this Kabinett displays the bright citricity and consequent tension – not to mention the transparency to shimmering, invigoratingly tingling crystalline mineral impingements – that the vintage’s “Quarzit” bottling lacked. And at...

91 points John Gilman: "The 2017 Kahlenberg Trocken comes in at 12.5 percent alcohol and three grams per liter of residual sugar in this vintage and is a beautifully balanced, elegant example of the vintate that will age long and gracefully. As Helmut Dönnhoff notes, “the Kahlenberg is a warmer vineyard and we are now picking it a bit earlier to get this raciness.” The bouquet wafts from the glass in nascently complex blend of blood orange, grapefruit, wild yeasts, complex minerality, citrus peel and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is cris...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a loamier site, the 2006 Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Kabinett displays subtle creaminess allied to genuine delicacy, featuring refined variations on spiced apple and pear, rhubarb preserves, and tingling finishing mineral suggestions. Amazingly, considering what I would not hesitate to call its “true Kabinett lightness,” this has around the same 10% alcohol as the powerful, scarcely-delicate “Quarzit” bottling. It also harbors yet higher – nearly ten grams – acidity. (DS)" (10/2008)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tarragon, oregano, stones, and pears can be detected in the nuanced scents of the spectacular 2003 Riesling Auslese Niederhauser Hermannshohle. Like the Dellchen, this offering blew me away with its juxtaposition of immense richness and elegant detail. Medium-bodied and satin-textured, it reveals an ample character awash in spices, herbs, poached pears, and super-ripe apples. Notes of red currants, slate, and candied minerals intermingled with linden blossoms can also be discerned in its complex flavor profile. W...

94 points James Suckling: "The flint and smoke nose could hardly be more minerally. Powerful and racy with stunning, lemon acidity and a big punch of minerality at the long, bold finish. Drink or hold. " (09/2018) 92 points Vinous: "From mature stands of vines, largely in the Stromberg, this was harvested around a week ahead of the corresponding Grosses Gewächs. Crushed stone is suggested already on the nose, along with pit-tinged peach and zesty grapefruit. The palpably dense palate displays strong piquancy and palpable stone suffusion to complement i...

Vinous: "This featured a higher percentage of spontaneous fermentation than did the corresponding “Porphyr” bottling, and that shows in some residual aromatic yeastiness and smokiness that slightly clouds scents of mango and Persian melon. The mouth feel is surprisingly soft, with a luscious emphasis on sheer fruitiness; the finish caressingly-sustained and a bit superficially sweet. Apropos sweetness, residual sugar in this cuvée, although it has been steadily diminishing, is still at a level (here 35 grams) where the wine works best under conditions of...

95 points James Suckling: "Very ripe, but no less graceful, this is an extremely refined wine for this category with hints of vanilla and floral honey. Long and complex mineral finish with great freshness. Drink or hold. " (09/2018)

93 points James Suckling: "An off-dry riesling that's brimming with the smoky character that porphyry soil produces. The balance between the peaches and nectarines and the lively acidity on the medium-bodied palate is spot on. With more power at the finish this would have rated even higher. Drink or hold." (07/2018) 90 points Vinous: "Smoky struck flint wreaths, white peach, fig and lime on the nose. The palate impression is glossy and lusciously-fruited, with a bittersweet, crunchy hint of cassis berries adding to its appeal. The residual sugar is sup...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Tight and focused, with peach, sweet corn, vanilla custard and lime notes. Remains elegant, though rich, with good harmony and length. Shows its potential on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2028. (BS)" (04/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Spatlese Eisendell emphasizes melons, pears, and honey, giving a rich, lush, drippingly juicy and sweet, yet delicate palate impression, and finishing with impressive refinement and wet stone, smoky, tingling intimations of min...



93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pineapple, grapefruit, and heady essence of gardenia dominate the Diel 2008 Dorsheimer Goldloch Riesling Spatlese, with hints of botrytis-engendered honey emerging as it opens to the air. An alkaline mineral note adds welcome counterpoint to the wine’s effusive (psychologically suggestive as well as actual) sweetness. The texture is polished, glycerin-rich, and creamy, characteristics which – along with the sense of liquid floral perfume – make for a soothing, seductive, buoyant, and soaring finish. Feel free to ...

2005 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese (GK) Nahe (375ml)
Back In Stock!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A captivating nose of minerals, wax, lanolin and melted candle wax. The palate is different to the nose: much more fruit-driven with apple, white peach, orange zest with good acidity. Almost viscous in texture, but all the time with exquisite balance and poise with good weight on the finish. This will only get better. Tasted June 2006. (NM)" (05/2010) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Almost racy, this has an edge of acidity that keeps the apple, peach and mineral notes focused and long. Elegant and persistent, with t...

95 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Hermannshöhle Spätlese from the estate has no intention of being upstaged by the Brücke this year, as this too is a brilliant wine. The nose jumps from the glass in a complex blaze of fresh pineapple, pungent citrus zest, apple, a beautiful base of slate, wild yeasts and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, complex, medium-full and beautifully suave on the attack, with superb mineral undertow and a laser-like and electric finish. Equally stunning juice. (Drink between 2025-2075) " (04/2019) 95 poi...

99 points James Suckling: "A dense and layered white with minerals, salt, white pepper, chalk, dried lemon and subtle pears. Pumice. Wow. Tiny film of oil. Creamy and insane. What a wine. Magic. One for the cellar. Drink or hold." (09/2019) 95 points Decanter: "From a site of slate and porphyry facing the Nahe river and from Cornelius Dönnhoff's capable hands, this is an expression of stone and sun. A very scented nose of citric ripeness sets the tone. The palate is mild and fresh at the same time, pristine and vivid but beautifully balanced and ripe. ...

94 points James Suckling: "A stunning Kabinett that reinterprets this category in a barely off-dry style. Delicate, apricot nose and a ravishing interplay of fruit and acidity. Where is the smoked salmon? Where is that roast chicken? Drink or hold." (09/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Musky perfume of peony and narcissus, accompanied by mint and green tea, share aromatic billing with intimations of white peach and Persian melon. The silken palate is correspondingly luscious, coolingly herb-suffused, and loaded with billowing inner-mouth perfume. Sweet-saline,...

92 points James Suckling: "A seriously racy and minerally dry riesling that has serious depth at the long, sleek finish, where it achieves lift off! Drink now. " (09/2018) 91 points Vinous: "Here is one of those Nahe Rieslings from a vintage that leads with unusually Chablis-like animal and mineral elements. Saffron and sea breeze mingle with lemon rind, struck flint and chicken stock on the nose as well as on a polished, infectiously juicy palate, where an influx of ripe white peach serves for succulence and the piquancy of peach kernel and lemon pip ...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Freesia and cherry blossom scent Donnhoff’s characteristically floral and endearing 2011 Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spatlese, whose palate alliance of creaminess, levity, infections juiciness, and persistently wafting perfume is downright irresistible. The fruit here lusciously favors Persian melon, pear, quince and dark plum with an enlivening squirt of fresh lime. Black tea smokiness adds intrigue, pear skin a touch of incisive counterpoint, while a subtle sense of stony underpinnings sets off yet more strik...
