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.

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.

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.

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.

2017 NIEDERHÄUSER HERMANNS- HÖHLE Auslese GK [18 18] (DONN36217A)
A little more botrytis than in the Br'cke, 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.

2017 OBERHÄUSER BRÜCKE Auslese GK [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.
