Product Description

This site directly by the river is exclusively owned by the Dönnhoff estate. It features ancient rock with clay slate bedrock, covered by a layer of loess loam and has a perfect microclimate for great noble sweet Riesling wines. The vines are between 25 and 35 years old and yield roughly 45hl/ha. 100% selective hand harvest. The musts are fermented and the wines matured in stainless steel vats. This is a Riesling with spicy ripeness and intense fruit. It's very complex with a wonderful balance between ripe fruit sweetness and classy acidity.

The 1.1ha vineyard of Brücke is a monopole of the estate. The vines are planted in loess loam soils over a slate bedrock, and its sheltered location down by the river is perfect for producing spätlese. The 2018 has a ripe green apple character on the nose, joined by notes of white flowers and a touch of honey. The palate is incredibly intense and limey, sweet yet elegant and balanced. It almost appears to be drier than the Leistenberg Kabinett at this early stage, such is its impeccable harmony, absorbing its 85g/l of residual sugar effortlessly. Snap this up when you can, but don't touch it for a good six years or more. Barrel sample. 95 points Decanter

This is a decadent sweet wine with bright dried peaches, white truffle and light honey. Tropical fruit, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered with beautiful intensity and richness. Sweet finish. 94 points JamesSuckling.com 

The 2018 Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Spätlese is very intense and aromatic on the dense and voluptuous nose. Lush and creamy on the palate, this is a generous and dense, lush and persistent Brücke Spätlese with remarkable freshness and piquancy. It's pretty straight and piquant, with remarkable finesse and mineral tension. Tasted in July 2019. 93 points Wine Advocate
