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.

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.

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.

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.

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 fruit?s power. It is quite lovely.

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.

2018 Oberhäuser Brücke Beerenauslese (DONN60218B)
On the night of 20th December the temperature dropped to -5°C, and at dawn the plot of vines set aside for Eiswein was harvested. Unfortunately it was not cold enough to make the planned Eiswein, so it became a BA instead. It?s more of a mini-Eiswein, though, with such brisk lemony acidity that the wine?s considerable sweetness is not much in evidence. There is great concentration and power, and with time there will be elegance.
