2018 Dönnhoff Estate Riesling Nahe

SKU #1429993 91 points James Suckling

 Green apples, pear drops and chamomile are in play here. Lightly off-dry with some softness and a fruity finish, but some pretty acidity crunch. Drink now.  (9/2019)

K&L Notes

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 period,” he opines, “I find myself asking: ‘wouldn’t it also have worked if this wine had had a bit less residual sugar; in fact, might it not then have displayed clearer contours?’” He insists that electing to field a collection of what he, with obvious pride and glee, terms “naked” dry wines “involved a certain financial risk. But it turned out well and we were sold out more rapidly than ever before.”"
