Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese 2017

99 James Suckling
(9/19/2018) "Most people who drink wine know what a ripe peach tastes like. However, this wine gives you a completely new appreciation of the meaning of the word "peach". Beyond that, it possesses subtlety that is extremely rare anywhere in the world of food and wine. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Absolutely delicious now, but could be held for decades."

Winemaker's Notes

(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."

Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese 2017

96 James Suckling
(9/19/2018) "So light and filigree with such a delicate white-peach note. Yet, behind the almost weightless exterior is enormous depth and an almost savage mineral freshness at the finish. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold."

Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese 2016

95 Vinous, David Schildknecht
(4/2018) "The site-typical nose delivers a head-turningly fragrant rush of buddleia and heliotrope, while anticipating the juicy, piquant, crunchy fresh red raspberry, pit-inflected white peach and lime that dominate a silken, almost creamy, yet animatingly bright palate. Inner-mouth perfume rises seductively as fresh ginger adds incisive invigoration and an influx of quince reinforces the sense of richness. On one level, the finish is penetratingly bright and vibrantly animating, preserving invigoratingly piquant hints of seeds and pits. Yet simultaneously it seems to float with near-endless suspension into the ether, subtly echoing the complexities that went before and adding a mouthwatering hint of salinity."

Von Racknitz "Odernheimer Kloster Disbodenberg " Riesling Trocken 2012

Winemaker's Notes
"The former vineyard of the Disibodenberg monastery was built by my father with cross-breeds in 1976, in which I also saw the light of the world. He wanted complex complex Riesling wines and planted - for the time at that time untypical - Riesling selections from different clones. On the ancient fresh water sediments, the clay slate, mixed with sandstone, have flourished since then in the ideal micro-climate of the dry walls, wines characterized by their typical minerality and gentle texture."

Emrich- Schonleber Nahe Riesling Trocken 2016

91 Our Score
90 Vinous, David Schildknecht
(4/2018) "This wine's sunny brightness and infectious juiciness are based on tart-edged fresh apple and zesty lemon seemingly infused with crushed stone (a mineral dimension already noticeable on the nose). Mineral salts set the salivary glands pumping on a buoyant, energetic, ultra-refreshing finish. Dissolved CO2 enhances the invigorating effects of this irresistibly delightful tonic. Drink: 2018 - 2022."

Donnhoff "Oberhauser Leistenberg" Riesling Kabinett 2016

92 Vinous, David Schildknecht
(4/2018) "Bosc pear, lime, struck flint and wet stone on the nose anticipate the brightly juicy, snappy, strongly stone-inflected impression on a polished, buoyant palate. Here is an excellent example of density allied to levity and animation such as vintage 2016 is especially capable of delivering. This finishes with an impressive sense of energy and a striking, undulating interplay of fruit and mineral elements. It's likely to follow in a line of Leistenberg Kabinetts that display stamina in bottle. Drink 2018 - 2028."

Joh. Bapt. Schafer Dorsheim Riesling Trocken 2015

Wine Advocate quotes a release price of $33-39 for this dry, ageworthy Nahe estate-grown Riesling. We're selling it for less than half that amount!
89 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) The 2015 Dorsheim Riesling Trocken is sourced in the Grosse Lage vineyards Pittermännchen (60%) and Goldloch (40%) but from younger vines and less well exposed rows. Macerated between eight to 12 hours, the wine fermented partly in stainless steel and partly in 1,200-liter oak Stück. It opens with a delicately fruity, stony, initially a bit reductive, yet intense nose with pineapples flavors. Full-flavored, very juicy and piquant, this is a very elegant and well balanced Riesling with grip and bitter grapefruit flavors in the finish. This is surely a wine to be kept for 3-8 or even 10 years. Drink Date 2019 - 2026."
