Helmut Donnhoff and son Cornelius are one of Germany's finest wine producers making the best wines in the Nahe and some of the finest Rieslings anywhere in the world. They are sheer perfection in their elegantly defined structure and flawless harmony. Dönnhoff wines have such power and complexity that their signature weightlessness seems nigh on miraculous.

The Dönnhoff family carve a signature weightlessness with these wines at every level, and we simply cannot get enough of them. Owned and operated by Helmut Dönnhoff and son Cornelius, it's all about Riesling, and here, the vineyards speak for themselves, you just have to listen to them. With a rich farming history, over 250 years, the family have owned a traditional pastoral farm near the small village of Oberhäusen. This region is known for it's green, undulating hills and valleys planted with vineyards dotted across the Nahe river. The winery itself started 100 years ago, yet it was only since the 1970's that quality wine production became the sole focus at Dönnhoff, with every decision and technique applied in the winery, done to preserve the clarity of fruit in the wine.

Tasting Note:
The Estate Riesling comes from vines aged 15 to 30 years old grown on the steeply sloping vineyards of the middle Nahe region. The vines grow in stony, weathered volcanic soils of porphyry and melaphyr in particular, with certain amounts of slate and quartzite. Wonderfully fresh and well defined, elegant with a tingling minerality. A delicious wine for every day with moderate alcohol and very soothing acidity.

This is a Dry, Medium- bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
