"Lift and interest on the nose with great exuberance. Lots of richness! Amazing length. Bitter grapefruit with a hint of passion fruit. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all on the finish!" jancisrobinson.com, 18 points, drink 2015-2028
The D�nnhoff family bought a modest estate in the Nahe in the 1750s. In 1971 current owner, Helmut D�nnhoff produced his first vintage and has not looked back since. A regular on the shortlist of �German Winemaker of the Year� and actual winner in 1999, Helmut�s work is helping the Nahe to take a share of the plaudits showered on the more internationally renowned German wine regions of the Mosel and the Rheingau. His cool, calm demeanour is a stark contrast to the demonic fervour with which he tends his vineyards. Only the best hand-picked fruit will do, in order to produce wines that are honest refl ections of the Riesling grape and the terroir its planted in whether it be the volcanic soils of the Kupfergrube (copper mine), the deep, cool Br�cke, the slate/sandstone Hermansh�hle or the slate of the Leistenberg. Fermentation is in the traditional large old wooden casks and there is a light filtration before bottling. Some of Germany�s most intense, bewitching and mouthwatering wines, that mixes Rheingau body with Mosel minerality.
