2014 FELSENBERG, Grosses Gewächs, Donnhoff. Nähe, Germany
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Felsenberg is a steep, stony, south-facing vineyard in the village of Schlossböckelheim. The Nahe river may be less famous than the Rhine or Mosel, but its best wines are classically perfect Rieslings - an unmissable evocation of slatey minerality.
Grape Variety: Riesling, fermented in large old German barrels (no influence of wood in the wine, of course.
Producer: Helmut Dönnhoff is one of the greatest winemakers in Germany (and therefore the world). He makes dry, off-dry and fully sweet wines which all combine real concentration with beguiling delicacy. In 2005 he was 'Wine Personality of the Year' in Robert Parker's 'The Wine Advocate' and since then his reputation has only risen.
Old Bridge Rating: Outstanding example of GG (a system for recognition of top quality dry German wines). Extremely fine, delicate, lively Riesling.
