2017 Krotenpfuhl Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Dönnhoff, Nahe

This is the first time Laurence has made this wine. It has a lovely citrus character, mostly grapefruit and lemon essence. Really tightly wound, but finessed, with piercing, driven acidity and wonderful complexity. They were surprised by the potential for dry wines here. Wonderful length. Less than 3 grams/litre.

2017 Krotenpfuhl Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Dönnhoff, Nahe
Weingut Dönnhoff

Dönnhoff are based in the Nahe region of Germany, noted for its diverse soils, which are beautifully expressed in Dönnhoff’s single vineyard wines. The family winery has existed since the mid-18th century, but has reached its highest level under Helmut Dönnhoff, at the helm since 1971. Dönnhoff’s wines bear the standard for the Nahe, so often overshadowed by Mosel and Rheingau.
