Coolish, very clear, subtle but multi-layered on the highly elegant, finesse-full and flinty nose starts the 2014 Riesling Dellchen GG. This is a full-bodied, pure, very elegant, highly complex and frisky Riesling of great finesse and lots of salt. The wine is bone dry, but so intense, pure and mineral... so fine and so intense. This is probably the finest Dellchen I have tasted. Extraordinary! "We have picked the Dellchen earlier than we used to do in former years, when we tended to wait and to wait..." says Helmut Dönnhoff. "In 2014, botrytis forced us to pick earlier and now we are very happy with the result because we aim for clarity and precision." - Stephan Reinhardt

Golden yellow core with a slight touch of silver hue towards the rim. The nose delivers a core of golden delicious apple, orange rind, jasmine and lychee followed by a complex streak of minerals. The palate is bone dry... Golden yellow core with a slight touch of silver hue towards the rim. The nose delivers a core of golden delicious apple, orange rind, jasmine and lychee followed by a complex streak of minerals. The palate is bone dry and has great acidity that lingers from start to finish. The delicious mid-palate comes through with amazing clarity of flavor and depth as the pure fruit melds with spicy undertones. This is drinking very well today but promises to age beautifully two decades or more easily.
