From a steep, south-facing vineyard on red sandstone soils, the 2015 (Roxheimer) Höllenpfad Riesling Trocken opens with warm and generous yellow apple fruit, but also a coolish and piquant sand stone expression with spicy and even peppery lemon flavors. "The grapes are always smaller here than in the Kahlenberg and the berries [are] very intense in their fine fruit aromas," says Helmut Dönnhoff. The roots can go through the sandstone, which is not the case in the volcanic soils of Niederhausen and Oberhausen. As a result, drought stress is very rare and that makes the Höllenpfad a perfect origin for dry Rieslings. On the palate, this is a generously fruity, but also pure, piquant and finely racy Riesling with lingering salinity and lemony freshness. The wine is dense and generous, but precise, fresh and rather cool instead of warm. It is a gorgeous Riesling that combines the warmth of the northern Nahe, closer to the Rhine river, with the purity and salinity of the Niederhausen/Oberhausen. The finish is pretty, long and aromatic, and the ripe apples remain on the palate as do the stony flavors. - Stephan Reinhardt

View From The Cellar, March 2016
90+ The 2015 Höllenpfad Trocken is another very strong effort, but the wine is a bit more bound up in its youthful structure today than the Kahlenberg and will want a year or two longer in the cellar to start to blossom... 90+ The 2015 Höllenpfad Trocken is another very strong effort, but the wine is a bit more bound up in its youthful structure today than the Kahlenberg and will want a year or two longer in the cellar to start to blossom. The primary bouquet delivers scents of grapefruit, lemongrass, wild yeasts, dried flowers, a touch of the vintage’s botanical overtones and gentle smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nascently complex, with a very solid core, brisk acids and fine backend mineral drive on the long and well-balanced finish. A lovely bottle that will need a bit of time in the cellar to start to drink with generosity. (Drink between 2020-2050)
