Marks and reviews
For more than 250 years, Weingut Dönnhoff has watched over a unique terroir of vertiginous hillsides on the banks of the Nahe river. Helmut Dönnhoff produces, vintage after vintage, great German wines from a patchwork of terroirs which express the complexity, purity and multiple nuances of Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.
Recognised across the borders as being among the greatest white wines in the world, Weingut Dönnhoff wines are seducing with their elegance, their aromatic richness, their freshness as well as their exceptional minerality emitted after several decades of ageing.
Covering an area of 25 hectares, the terroir of Weingut Dönnhoff derives its uniqueness from its multiplicity of soils and sun exposure leading to ideal conditions for the grapes to reach their optimum maturity. Undergoing rigorous care, the 20 to 70-year-old vines produce low but very qualitative yields.
Classified as VDP Gutswein, this 2020 Riesling Tonschiefer Trocken by Weingut Dönnhoff comes from a sloping vineyard composed of slate soils, giving this white wine an utterly elegant express. The vines are between 25 and 45 years old.
Vinification and ageing
