Tootekood: 473 Kategooria:


“Famous, steeply sloping vineyard with a southern aspect in a small side valley of the middle section of the Nahe River. Weathered red sandstone soil. Average age of vines is 30 years, yield 45 hl/ha, 100% selective hand harvest. Fermentation and maturation in classical wood barrels and stainless steel vats. Sophisticated Riesling with notable fruit and spice aromas balanced by a precise and playful sweetness. Red sandstone lends the wine spicy aromas of black pepper and expressive fruits.” Cornelius Dönnhoff (Owner & Winemaker)

“Very striking nose of wild berries and herbs (tarragon!) plus some white peach. Very zesty and vibrant with stacks of mountain freshness on the sleek and focused body, this has stacks of lime zest and pith at the very energetic dry finish. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drink or hold.” James Suckling 94 points

“The 2022 Riesling Roxheimer Höllenpfad is from Permian red sandstone. Despite much swirling, the nose is rather shy and does not want to give up any secrets. The taut palate is more forthcoming with a bright, crystal-clear lemon note. The 2022 is a linear wine with a proper streak of lemon zestiness and a deep well of ripe lemon freshness that is serene, streamlined, clear and lasting. Lovely. The fine acidity is buffered with a beautiful, subtle length, bone-dry.” Antonio Galloni Vinous 92 points
