Helmut Dönnhoff and son Cornelius make the best wines in the Nahe region and
some of the finest anywhere in the world. We can't possibly overstate how much
we cherish and revere these wines. They are sheer perfection in their elegantly
defined structure and flawless harmony. The epitome of their meticulous
winemaking is the Eiswein. Dönnhoff wines have such power and complexity that
their signature weightlessness seems nigh on miraculous. One taste and you sense
the magic. These wines are on a par with the best of Germany in a very unique
way: the sweet wines rival those of Prüm, Loosen and Egon Müller and the dry
wines are mentioned in the same breath as luminaries such as Wittmann and Weil.
Very few - if any - have this degree of versatility...
A historic steeply sloping vineyard which Dönnhoff awoke from its slumber.
Steep terraces in a hollow with slate and porphyry soils. The vines are about 20
years old and yield about 35hl/ha. 100% selective hand harvest. The must is
fermented and the wine matured in classic wooden barrels and stainless steel
vats. Vigorously spicy and at the same time dancingly elegant with great depth
and a fascinating charisma.
