Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, August 2016

    This Kabinett single vineyard Grosse Lage (the German equivalent of a grand cru) has a touch of sweetness, though the modest amount of sugar is balanced by tremendous acidity, and it tips the scales at just 9.5% alcohol. The south easterly slopes of the Leistenberg vineyard excel at the Kabinett level and this outstanding 2015 is as fine an example as there is. There is a great substance of fruit running through the palate, and there is grip and spice to the impressive finish. Absolutely outstanding.

Producer

Helmut Dönnhoff

Dönnhoff is one the best producers in all of Germany and the estate is arguably the most famous outside of the Mosel valley. The family domaine dates from 1750 and is comprised of 28-hectares in the Nahe, a region located southeast of the Mosel. Its climate unexpectedly evokes the Mediterranean, and its soils are comparable to the Mosel with the addition of clay, though not as steep. The combination of these 2 elements seems to give the best of both worlds - the focus and minerality of the Mosel as well as the fleshy fruit of Germany's warmer regions. The vines have been passed on from father to son to grandson and now the fourth generation holds the reins. Cornelius Dönnhoff took over from his father Helmut in 2007 after 8 years of training. Cornelius continues his father's natural (and perfectionsit) winemaking philiopshy, producing wines of extraordinary power, concentration and complexity. Spellbinding and thought-provoking, they are worth discovering.

Region

Nahe

Nahe is located to the south east of the Mosel. Its climate unexpectedly evokes the Mediterranean, and its slate soils are comparable to the Mosel with the addition of clay, though not as steep. The combination of these two elements seems to give the best of both worlds - the focus and minerality of the Mosel as well as the fleshy fruit of Germany's warmer regions.
