Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spatlese, Donnhoff
The oldest recorded vineyards of the Nahe are located in this part of Norheim. Kirsche means “cherry”, so the old name of the site suggests that wild cherries grew among the vineyards. The soils of the purely south-facing site are composed largely of grey slate, mixed with sandstone.
Not so girlish or sweet-natured as usual; this is serious and wants to make a point—how strong and proud this terroir can be.
A megalith of mineral here! Its cherry-dimples are discreet. Seems drier than usual, less comely, more complex, and utterly
vivid and dazzling. – Terry Theise
