The Dönnhoff estate is situated in the village of Oberhäusen between the villages of Niederhausen and Schlossböckelheim in the rocky landscape of the middle Nahe. The family first came to the region over 200 years ago and established a modest farm. They turned the farm into a fully-fledged wine estate, with the acquisition of top vineyards. The soil in the Nahe is a mixture of slate, porphyry marble (crystal and mineral-filled lava rock) and sandstone, whilst the vinification involves a very slow fermentation in classic German old oak casks. Helmut Dönnhoff has been making the wines since 1971. “For Dönnhoff’s Riesling Auslese one is compelled to delve into a lexicon of taste sensations. Tarragon, stones, and pears can be detected in the nuanced scents its juxtaposition of immense richness and elegant detail. Medium-bodied and satin-textured, it reveals an ample character awash in spices, herbs, poached pears, and super-ripe apples. Notes of red currants, slate, and candied minerals intermingled with linden blossoms can also be discerned in its complex flavour profile.” Doug Wregg
