Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(AG=93)  I had a tiny share of Klamm for many years noted Donnhoff, but it went into our Gutsriesling. After acquiring a second parcel, he replanted it, and those vines have only been in production for a few years. Then an old-vines holding in this estimable Einzellage was acquired from Luisa von Racknitz, at which point, in 2017, a significant share of Klamm fruit was shunted into Donnhoff's off-dry Gutsriesling. Now, for the first time, the Donnhoffs have essayed a dedicated bottling. Nut extracts and pit-inflected white peach make for a bittersweet cast, while the richness and succulence of fruit displayed on a buoyant, silken palate is enlivened by a squeeze of fresh lime. Smoky, stony and mouthwateringly saline nuances delightfully complicate the luscious, seductively sustained finish of this delectable gem. What an auspicious debut!

(JS=93) This is a compact and solid white with dried-peach and canteloup aromas and flavors. Mineral undertone. Medium to full body. Hefty, medium-sweet Kabinett with a flavorful finish. Drink now.

(WA=92) From a one-hectare plot with younger vines on porphyry soils, the 2018 Niederh?user Klamm Riesling Kabinett is open, bright and fresh on the nose, with ripe fruit but also remarkable smokiness, elegance and polished character. Lush and round but crystalline and fresh on the palate, this is a charmingly elegant and fruity Kabinett with frisky salinity on the finish and nice mineral grip. Very attractive and fresh. Tasted in July 2019.
