2006 Dönnhoff Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spätlese (Germany, Nahe)

Germany, Nahe, Riesling, White Wine

Not bad. Took this to an afternoon/early evening BBQ as an aperitif. Shows nice fruit, acidity, and lemon, peach, and crushed rocks. The wine in this bottle seemed a little too fat and voluptuous for my taste. Not one of the banner Doennhoffs I’ve had so many times. That said, it is still a very pleasant drink and I can see it getting better with some age. How much I am not sure since the wine seemed a little simple, but medium term cellaring could be in order.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
