2022 Weingut Dönnhoff Riesling Trocken
A more than beautiful Riesling from Weingut Dönnhoff, which with its 9 Grosse Lagen is considered one of the absolute top in the region. The Riesling grapes come from Oberhausen and Niederhausen (so from weathered slate and volcanic stones). The Dönnhoff 2020 Riesling is pure and refreshingly minerally on the nose with clear, bright 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 flavor-boosting Riesling Helmut Dönnhoff, states: "We have to be careful that it doesn't become too good for the price range"
VDP (Verband Deutscher Pradikatsweinguter) Grosse Lage is the denominator for the very best German vineyards, which are precisely defined per plot. The VDP is an important organization with approximately 200 of the best wine growers in Germany. The VDP has mapped the quality of vineyards (and their wines) and divided them into Erste Lage and Grosse Lage, comparable to the Premier Cru and Grand Cru qualifications in Burgundy. With the VDP classification, the classification revolves around terroir rather than must weight. Unique wines with a special expression of the specific plot, a mature character and great maturing potential are born here. Only the very best grape varieties specifically suited to the vineyard enjoy the privilege of being planted for this purpose. The strictest possible production criteria guarantee the top of the VDP qualification pyramid.
