2004 FELSENBERG RIESLING AUSLESE, Dönnhoff. Nahe, Germany

Bin:  175

Alcohol percentage:  7.5%


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


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’

Maturity potential:

Already delicious but will improve to 2015 and hold to 2020

Old Bridge rating:

The sort of wine to win over doubters of traditional Germanic styles

Food match:

Auslese is not easy to match with food. Delicate body, medium sweetness. Perhaps best on its own, on a sunny afternoon
