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.
Hermannshole is Donnhoff's greatest site. This vintage has lots of power, in stereo sound, with lashings of yellow and lemony fruit, a creamy background, explosion of flavour, huge amount of extract then a pithy grapefruit finish.
