Donnhoff Riesling 2021
Donnhoff Riesling QbA has a lime-fresh fruit nose and an excellent, rich honeyed flavour and is perfect for current drinking.
The river Nahe (which gives its name to this extremely attractive, rural region) flows north out of the Hunstruck hills and joins the Rhein at Bingen. The best vineyard sites (Niederhausen, Schlossbckelheim, Oberhausen and Norheim) are situated around the spa town of Bad Kreuznach and the best wines have a full, pure and clean grapey taste with a fine, balancing acidity and a hint of aromatic, minerally fruit.
The Donnhoff estate has been in the same hands since 1750 and Helmut Donnhoff is undoubtedly one of Nahe's (and probably one of Germany's) best producers, making Rieslings from 15 hectares of prime vineyard sites with a wonderful combination of finesse, fragrance and racey fruitiness. In 1999, he won the coveted Gault Millau 'Winemaker of the Year' award and his 1998's were amongst some of the finest German wines we have tasted.
