There is a great reason that most of the wine world loves Dönnhoff and that is quality. The dedication to Riesling is evident in every style and vineyard they work and translates deliciously into the glass.
Tonschiefer comes from the Leisternberg vineyard, who's name derives the multiple meanings of "Leisten", which translates to "achieve" and "Lei" is "slate". Perhaps poetically this certainly sums up the achievement of Riesling on slate. There is always a zesty minerality to the Tonschiefer and a personal favourite is often the little bit of spritz on the palate along with the refreshing acidity.
Combined with the attractive bright pale straw colour and a cool mineral and stone aroma it makes this a classy aperitif and goes superbly with Thai or Asian cuisine and seafood dishes.
Like a laser beam of freshness and this is only the beginning for Dönnhoff!
