Dönnhoff Estate Riesling Trocken

Dönnhoff Estate Riesling Trocken

Region: Nahe
Grape: Riesling
Vineyard: Mostly from Oberhauser Felsenberg (volcanic), Kieselberg (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 is 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.
