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 for the Tonschiefer mainly come from the Leistenberg plus first selections of the local crus. The 2020 Riesling Tonschiefer opens pure and stony with citrus notes on the earthy nose that wonderfully captures the clayey slate terroir of the Tonschiefer. Complex and juicy on the palate and very intense and structured, dry Riesling has a fine phenolic grip and an expressive finish with salty and spicy acids. An impressive wine with only 12% alcohol and a drinking window until 2050+.
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.
