Donnhoff - Riesling Trocken Kreuznacher Kahlenberg 2018

A View from the Cellar: 92 Points

The 2018 Kahlenberg Trocken was still in cask. This is superb and again, shows off the supreme elegance of the vintage at the winery this year, wafting from the glass in a very complex aromatic blend of pink grapefruit, tart orange, stony minerality, plenty of upper register smokiness, a touch of wild yeasts, orange peel and dried flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, racy and focused, with an excellent core, fine soil signature and a very long, complex and seamlessly balanced finish. Excellent juice. (Drink between 2025-2065.)

Vinous: 92 Points

Pear and fresh lime deliver crunch and piquancy in an interpretation of Kahlenberg that is unusually fruit-oriented but still preserves site-typical stoniness. The satiny texture is also unusually flattering, and the finish features abundant refreshment with a shimmering exchange of fruit and stone. “It took a decade before we really understood this site,” averred Dönnhoff, “but 2020 I think we have it nailed.” He’ll get no argument on that score from me.
