2020 Dönnhoff "Estate" Riesling Nahe

SKU #1552668 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark So effusive thanks to the cornucopia of white peach and yellow apple, but also floral notes. Super fresh and juicy on the medium-bodied palate and the brilliant finish is barely off-dry. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification. Drink now. Screw cap. Inner quote mark (7/2021)

Outer quote mark Sourced in Oberhausen and Niederhausen (so from weathered slate and volcanic stones), the Dönnhoff estate 2020 Riesling is pure and refreshingly mineral on the nose that shows clear, bright and spicy fruit with crunchy slate aromas. Virtually a classic Kabinett, this is a round, only gently sweet Riesling with clear lemon fruit, a silky texture and very elegant, ripe and piquant acidity. This is a gorgeously fruity and stimulating Riesling to start with after a long night if you don't have fresh fruit on the table. "We have to be careful that it doesn't get too good for the price range," says Helmut Dönnhoff, and he is right, because this is a Nahe classic or, as Dönnhoff puts it, "This is the light, pure optimism, a children's choir. That is joie de vivre." 10.5% alcohol. (SR) Inner quote mark (7/2021)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Even with information as sparse as Riesling 2020 you can be rest-assured of a good wine when it comes from the house of Dönnhoff. It’s their so-called entry estate wine, not quite dry, produced in the style of a light and lively Kabinett with the merest hint of residual sugar. Minerality takes the back seat for once, letting the palate enjoy gentle notes of yellow fruit and a tasteful floral touch, backed by totally refreshing acidity. (MS) Inner quote mark (8/2021)

Dollar for dollar, there is no deal better than the Donhoff Estate Riesling in the world of wine. Talk about know-how: The Donnhoff family has roots in the wine business going back to the 18th century. This is entirely estate grown, hand picked, and imported to your backyard for under $20. The aromatics are impressive, the concentration of fruit is real, and the minerals and acidity evoke the steeply sloped, slate-strewn, wind-blown vineyards of the Nahe Valley - Pour this in your glass and take a journey.
