Winemakers Notes
92 Wine Advocate
(2/2013) ""'You with your (expletive) Eiswein!' Gabi told me when we left these grapes hanging," relates Donnhoff, and in fact his 2011 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Eiswein was another of those that threatened to disrupt the Christmas holidays, and when that didn't happen threatened yet worse. Helmut and Gabi Donnhoff left for Singapore and Cornelius for the U.S. "My daughter Christina was at home," Donnhoff continues, "academically astute, loves wine, but has no idea about viticulture. On January 17, the telephone rings. 'Mama, it's going to get cold tonight. And not just a little: minus 10 (14o F.). What should I do?!' So we set-up a three-way Skype connection, helped organized everything with the pickers, monitored the situation hour-by-hour, and walked Christina through the entire cellar process." I wish I could after all that say we have here 250 liters of truly great Donnhoff Eiswein, but the 2011 vintage itself is surely responsible for any weaknesses, not the unorthodox process by which picking and pressing were managed, let alone Christina, thanks to whom the world is enriched by an amazing if slightly awkward young wine. Musk and leather; prickly radish and lemon rind; caramel apple and honey; passion fruit and mango inform an intense aromatic as well as ultra-concentrated palate performance. Unlike with so many other 2011s rendered from frozen grapes in early 2012, one can't complain here about a lack of Eiswein-like acidity - but it takes-on a somewhat detached, slightly metallic and strident edge. Perhaps this extreme wine's caramelized and animal aspects will reconcile themselves in time with its sharp citricity and radish-like sizzle, but the ways of Eiswein in the bottle are capricious."

Leitz Geisenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Eiswein 2010

94 Vinous, Joel Payne
(1/2012) "Bright aromas of camomile tea, orange rind and lemon oil, plus a whiff of smoky botrytis. The supple black cherry flavor is animated by finely chiseled minerality. Dense yet vibrant, this is what eiswein should be in a vintage that produced very few examples of this quality."

(12/31/2016) "Plush and fruity, with concentrated red peach, melon and apricot tart flavors that are layered with plenty of rich, spicy notes. Plush creaminess lingers with unctuous honeyed accents on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases made."

G. D. Vajra "Petracine" Langhe Riesling 2012

A stunning Riesling from one of our favorite Piedmont wine families! If you like the dry, Alsatian style of Riesling, this is a must-try. This wine makes a name for Italian Riesling!

91 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(10/2013) "Vajra's 2012 Langhe Riesling is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Lime, tropical fruits, white flowers and spices all jump from the glass. This is one of the more immediate, open, young Vajra Rieslings I can remember tasting, which means the 2012 will drink well beautifully right out of the gate. Floral notes add lift on a finish of exceptional beauty."

Domaine Weinbach "Schlossberg" Grand Cru Riesling 2015

92+ Wine Advocate
92 James Suckling
(12/2016) "This is still an embryonic wine, but there's a lot of power and earthy-mineral character here and the kind of freshness that will give it great aging potential. A slight gooseberry touch to the long, powerful but clean finish. Made from biodynamically grown grapes."

Adam Dhron Hofberg Riesling Spatlese 2011

Importer Terry Theise says this is his wine of the vintage, and winemaker Andreas Adams greatest achievement to-date!
91 Wine Advocate
(4/2013) "From healthy fruit, as usual for wine of this Pradikat chez Adam - the botrytis having been picked-out beforehand from the relevant parcels - his 2011 Dhronhofberger Riesling Spatlese is, nonetheless, far-gone on sheer ripeness and nearly decadent in its aromas and lush, almost palpably pulpy palate expression of papaya, mango, orange, banana and musk melon. Creamy and glossy in feel and ripe though it is, this, nonetheless, displays an admirable sense of transparency to subtly stony and liquid floral nuances not to mention ample primary juiciness to serve for a refreshing finish. I suspect it will be best enjoyed over the next 10-12 years, but Adam's wines have been evolving (going from strength-to-strength) so steadily and his approach is so singular that one really doesn't have obvious benchmarks for age-ability."

Emmerich Knoll Ried Loibenberg Federspiel Riesling 2015

90 Wine Advocate
(6/2016) "From higher plots in the south-facing Loibenberg, the 2015 Loibner Riesling Ried Loibenberg Federspiel displays an elegant and intense, minerally flavored bouquet with ripe-apple aromas intertwined with pure flavors of crushed stones. Lean, fresh and piquant, this is an elegant and very mineral Riesling with a stimulating purity and salinity in the finish. Lovely, fresh, full of tension and provided with a very good length. Drink: 2018 - 2026."
