2010 vintage. Very good, but probably waning, at least for my taste. Dried apricot, candied orange peel, tangerine, dried apple, clover. Good length and not too cloying.

Much easier to drink than pronounce. In a very good spot with some very pretty acidity, citrus and pit fruit cocktail

Fresh fruit basket of nectarine, apricot, and starfruit. White pepper, honeysuckle, beeswax, and petroleum on the nose. Great length.

Acid to Sweetness mismatch. A bit overboard and a touch of Tang in the finish. Would love to see results in another vintage.

White flowers and passionfruit on the nose. Quite lovely and delicate with a perfumed finish, and ripe nectarine in the background.

My first Donnhoff and I immediately understand the power and have behind these wines. Need another soon!

Killer stuff as always from Dönnhoff. Never had this particular site from them, seems to produce a slightly leaner, more chiseled wine than the Dönnhoff Kabinett I’ve had from other sites. Simultaneous raciness and ripe juiciness. Great example of the classic Kabinett style.

- Color: pale straw hue
- Nose: flinty, slatey minerality, underripe nectarine and pineapple, Thai basil, a smattering of sweet floral notes, a bit of hallmark Riesling petrol/pool toy TDN character, white pepper, and a bit of yeasty, cheese rind leesiness
- Palate: ripe, juicy nectarine and pineapple, just-ripe mango, cherry blossom, clean, slate-y minerality, sweet Thai basil, and a bit of slight TDN character as on the nose
- Acid: high
- RS: medium (-)/medium, nicely balances out the acid and adds juiciness and ripeness to fruit character
- Alcohol: low
- Body: light/medium (-); slightly oily, glycerine texture
