96The Wine Advocate

...riot of herbal aromas... ...grapefruit and passion fruit... ...Horehound, licorice, sage, mint, black tea, nut oils, candied grapefruit rind, and crushed stone inform a silken-textured palate...

94Wine Spectator

Balanced and ripe, delivering concentrated peach, nectarine and white plum flavors that are rich and well-spiced. Very ethereal on the finish, with long, vibrant notes of mineral and sea salt...

91+ Vinous / IWC

...A discreet but intense apricot flavor rises from the mid-palate, accompanied by a subtle acidity. Animated, finely spiced spatlese with a deep, long finish. I may be underrating this.

18Jancis Robinson

Lift and interest on the nose with great exuberance. Lots of richness! Amazing length. Bitter grapefruit with a hint of passion fruit. It’s all on the finish!


H. Donnhoff

H. Donnhoff is a 32-acre estate in Oberhausen/Nahe, in southwestern Germany. The appellation is the very small Nahe appellation, and Helmut Donnhoff has been making noteworthy wines on his steep hillside vineyards there for more than 30 years. The estate itself has been in his family since 1750. Vineyards are planted to 75% Riesling, 25% Weissburgunder and Granburgunder. About 7,000 bottles are produced annually. Wine writer Hugh Johnson described Helmut Donnhoff as having “a fanatical commitment to quality, and a remarkable natural talent for winemaking.” The estate’s Rieslings are considered among the world’s best.



White Wine, Riesling, Spätlese

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
