Donnhoff Estate Feinherb Riesling 2019


| /

Characterful Riesling from the steeply sloping vineyards of the middle Nahe region. The vines are 15 to 30 years old and grow in stony, weathered volcanic soils of porphyry and melaphyr in particular, with certain amounts of slate and quartzite. Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats, this is a delightful off-dry Riesling with nuanced natural sweetness and sophisticated acidity.
A very attractive, just off-dry Riesling with tons of fruit-salad character, but no hint of anything banal. Quite the opposite in fact, as this is precisely balanced and has a long, very clean finish. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification. Drink now. Screw cap. 92 points. Stuart Pigott, September 2020

The 2019 Riesling (Estate) is bright, clear and fresh on the nose, even flinty. Round, pure and lush on the palate, this is a medium-sweet Riesling with great finesse and the typical Mosel lightness and piquancy. Beautifully straight and full of character. Tasted as a sample in Bremen, April 2020. 90 points. Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate April 2020
