2018 Dellchen GG [29 19] (DONN08218A)
Dellchen produces the most ethereal wines in the Dönnhoff stable: there is lightness and delicacy to the exotic yellow fruit, which has a gentle silky feel. But it also has the power of the vintage, and there is a dark, slaty fine finish.
2013 Norheimer Dellchen GG [29 14] (DONN08213C)
Fine, bright lemony flavours mingle with piquant mineral notes that lead to a juicy long grapefruit-infused finish. Very pure.Fine, bright lemony flavours mingle with piquant mineral notes that lead to a juicy long grapefruit-infused finish. Very pure.
2018 Oberhäuser Leistenberg Kabinett [04 19] (DONN12218A)
A balanced wine with the intensity of a Spätlese. It is rich and bright, has a juicy cool green note complementing the ripe yellow flavours, and a gentle slaty finish.
2017 Oberhäuser Leistenberg Kabinett [04 18] (DONN12217A)
Lots of depth, pithy grapefruit and bright lemon flavours and a dash of minerality make this wonderfully drinkable.
2016 Oberhäuser Leistenberg Kabinett [03 17] (DONN12216A)
Facing south-east, Leistenberg is a naturally cooler vineyard benefiting from the morning sun. Sweet ripe fruit is balanced by brisk acidity, and powerful slaty notes make the finish dry.
2012 Schlossböckelheimer Felsenberg 'Türmchen' Spätlese [14 13] (DONN20212A)
A lot of botrytis gives broad, generous flavours, kept on the straight and narrow by a fine minerality and juicy acidity.
2018 Oberhäuser Brücke Spätlese  (DONN25218A)
All the richness of an Auslese in the yellow fruit, which leans heavily to the tropical, but there is a cooling freshness from the discreet minerality that builds to a long salty sweet finish.
2017 Oberhäuser Brücke Spätlese [15 18] (DONN25217A)
A reassuringly similar tasting note to last year's, proof that this wine is an accurate reflection of the place in which the grapes were grown. It is fine, seamless and poised, with dense cool golden-yellow fruit, ripe lemony acidity and a long powerful salty mineral finish.
2018 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Spätlese [14 19] (DONN26218A)
There is a great weight of fruit here: a mass of ripe peach, mirabelle and mango, but the brilliant vivid acidity and finely structured mineral core handles it easily. It is balanced, elegant and pure, and there is a pleasing flourish of dark slaty minerality on the finish.
2017 Niederhäuser Hermanns- Höhle Spätlese [16 18] (DONN26217A)
Aristocratic, smooth and elegant: a seamless wine that has vibrant ripe acidity, a fine mineral weave and bursts with citrus and peach flavours. It is powerful and rich, with no trace of fat, and finishes very long.
2016 Niederhäuser Hermanns- Höhle Spätlese (DONN26216A)
To make dry wine, you need healthy grapes. So before the main harvest, the pickers pass through the vineyard removing very ripe and botrytized grapes, which are used for sweet wines like this one. It is creamy, rich and rounded, backed by vibrant citrus acidity and a vanishingly fine minerality. Spectacular as ever.
2013 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Spätlese [08 14] (DONN26213A)
Powerful and intense, with a burst of ripe golden berry fruit complemented by a superb mineral elegance. Effortless and long. Quite outstandingly good.
2013 Norheimer Dellchen Auslese Goldkapsel [22 14] (DONN35213B)
Healthy grapes from the Dellchen were destined for the GG; any affected by botrytis went into this luscious Auslese. Seamless elegance, with ripe lemon flavours and a market garden of yellow fruit.
2018 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Auslese Goldkapsel [24 19] (DONN36218A)
Always a bit more power than the Brücke. The fruit is sweet, golden-yellow and intense, requiring a big hit of acidity to balance it. Fortunately there is no shortage of pointed fine citrus-laden acidity, as well a powerful dark mineral component, both of which tame the fruits power. It is quite lovely.
2017 Niederhäuser Hermanns- Höhle Auslese Goldkapsel [18 18] (DONN36217A)
A little more botrytis than in the Brcke, but there is no sacrifice of elegance. Indeed, it has the typical finesse of the vineyard plus enormous depth and a hint of salty minerals on the long finish. Staggeringly nice.
2016 Niederhäuser Hermanns- Höhle Auslese Goldkapsel (DONN36216A)
A light clean botrytis lends a luscious creamy note to the pure yellow fruit. This is grapey and powerful, balanced by lively citrus notes and a hint of minerality under the dense fruit layer.
2018 Oberhäuser Brücke Auslese Goldkapsel  (DONN37218B)
Exotic and tropical, the golden-yellow fruit is held in check by brisk citrus flavours and a broad, almost chalky finish.
2017 Oberhäuser Brücke Auslese Goldkapsel [17 18] (DONN37217B)
A light dusting of botrytis gives a luscious edge to this clear, refined wine, dominated at this stage by golden yellow fruit, bright citrus acidity and a pure, delicious finish.
