Winery Notes:
Dönnhoff’s monopole site along the river, in which the soil visibly changes in the space of about 100 yards – four times. The past few years it has given Helmut’s weightiest wines. Amazing: from these 2.5 acres come white wines more noble and complex than any on this earth from one of the greatest vintners alive!

"*** Spring frost reduced the yields, though not as much as had been feared; perhaps you saw pictures of the night-lit vineyard as Cornelius worked on warming things up. It’s a vivid fantasy, a scrutable and visible depiction of this ur-Riesling; guava, salts, fervent spiciness (ginger, lemon-candy) and a stunning finish of herbs, apple-skin and mineral. Both approachable, ethereal and quietly magnificent, if you possess an inner mystic, this wine speaks its language." -Terry Theise
