RATINGS

91The Wine Advocate

...displays a lovely hint of creaminess allied to refreshment, and features a dynamic finishing interaction of fresh lemon and grapefruit, herbs, and wet stone...

90Vinous / IWC

Lichee, pine nuts and lemon oil on the nose. Delicate tropical fruit flavors with a salty twang brighten the palate. Refreshing acidity adds a feminine touch to the spicy finish. An excellent kabinett with lovely balance.

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.
