Dönnhoff Estate Riesling
Vineyard: Mostly from Oberhauser Felsenberg (volcanic), Keselberg (slate), & Klamm (weathered porphyry & slate)
Soil:The vines grow in stony, weathered volcanic soils of porphyry and melaphyr in particular, with certain amounts of slate and quartzite.
Wine making: Fermentations occur in a combination of stainless & used large oak
The idea here is to make a village wine, basically, though it’s sold and marketed as a Gutswein or Estate bottled basic wine. The Estate wine combines the two major soils that dominate the holdings for the estate, giving the drinker a look into what Dönnhoff is all about. The basic wine is a calling card and thus Cornelius wants to make statement.
The geology of the middle Nahe is notably shaped by its eons-old clay slate formations and rich volcanic soils. The concentration of old Oberhausen vineyards – Kieselberg (slate) and Felsenberg (volcanic), help provide the perfect base for this outstanding Gutsriesling.
