A more than beautiful Riesling from Weingut Dönnhoff, which with its 9 Grosse Layers is counted among the absolute top in the region. The Riesling grapes come from Oberhausen and Niederhausen (ie from weathered slate and volcanic stones). The Dönnhoff 2020 Riesling is pure and refreshingly mineral on the nose with bright, clear and spicy fruit with crisp slate aromas. A thoroughly classic Kabinett with citrus, a silky texture and a very elegant, ripe and spicy acidity. This is a wonderfully fruity and stimulating taste-inducing Riesling Helmut Dönnhoff, states: "We have to be careful that it doesn't get too good for the price range"

VDP (Verband Deutscher Pradikatsweinguter) Grosse Lage is the denominator for the very best German vineyards, which are accurately delimited per plot. The VDP is an important organization that includes about 200 of the best winegrowers in Germany. The VDP has mapped the quality of vineyards (and their wines) and divided them into Erste Lage and Grosse Lage, similar to the Premier Cru and Grand Cru qualifications in Burgundy. With the VDP classification, the classification revolves around terroir instead of must weight. Unique wines with a special expression of the specific plot, a mature character and a great aging potential are born here. Only the very best grape varieties, specific to the vineyard, enjoy the privilege of being planted for this. The strictest possible production criteria guarantee the top of the VDP qualification pyramid.
