Weingut Hermann Dönnhoff en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile Against many odds, this is a startlingly good collection. As in most of Germany, April frosts were an issue here, with much blackened vegetation, but secondary bud growth was rapid and successful, so the damage was not as bad as feared Nontheless yields are down by 35%. Although the harvest was early ' they finished in mid-October, around the time they usually start ' the nights were cool and the acidity in the grapes did not drop. The result is vibrant wines with more concentration than 2017, but without the power of 2015.

2019 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Auslese Goldkapsel [17 20] (DONN36219A)
More restrained than the Brucke, the botrytis is not so evident, and it is richer, spicier and finer. It is a wine completely at ease with itself, relaxed and balanced, with all elements, the peachy golden-yellow fruit, dark core of stony mineral, and juicy ripe acidity, all perfectly attuned. The texture is silky, and the finish builds to a saline crescendo that promises a very long life, if you can keep your hands off it.
