Helmut Donnhoff is regularly noted as one of the top few winemakers in Germany, and he stands head and shoulders above his peers in the Nahe region in the southwest of Germany. The trocken style is fast becoming the style of choice for many consumers, despite the indisputable high quality of the traditional sweet wines of Germany, and here we find one that's drinking beautifully as a young wine.
All Grosses Gewäches wines must be dry by law and approved by tasting before being bottled. They all come from what are effectively 'Grand Cru' sites - the finest in Germany. As a general rule these are the best dry Rieslings in the world.
Felsenburg is one of the great sites in the Nahe this is one of Germany's greatest dry white wines. Masses of power and extraordinary complexity, the 2016 of this wine is off the charts. Amazing now but this will be in another world in 5-10 years time. Must have!
