Donnhoff Riesling Trocken 2006

Posted by

I’ve sampled several Donnhoff’s now – enough to convince me that with the right producer German Riesling can soar. This example, however, was a bit disappointing, while still being very well made. The nose on this was standard grapefruit and minerals, with the palate offering more grapefruit, lime, and river stones. Nice and soft in the mouth, this Riesling was simple and good, but not at the level of the Estate riesling or the Kabinett reviewed previously. I think Grosset does a better job with dry Riesling at this price point.

Very Good+

    I bought a single vineyard Donnhoff Kabinett for $7 less than this one…sorry.

    Ya I think the trocken is a bit overpriced in BC. The single vineyard kabinetts are only $5 more in Vancouver. However, now that I’m in california, the prices are ridiculously cheap.
