Dönnhoff Estate Riesling 2014
Characterful dry Riesling from 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. Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats and large oak barrels. Wonderfully fresh and well defined, elegant with a tingling minerality. A delicious wine for every day with moderate alcohol and very soothing acidity.
James Halliday – Gleaming straw-green; elegance personified, delicate yet with laser precision; grapefruit and apple flow through the length of the palate, strung along a strand of bright acidity; excellent length. Will grow and grow on its perfect balance. Drink to 2034; 11.5% alc; screwcap.
In a mixed or straight case: $36.09
