2004 FELSENBERG RIESLING AUSLESE, Dönnhoff. Nahe, Germany

Bin:  175

Alcohol percentage:  7.5%

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’

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
