Grosses Gewächs – Some of the Best Whites There Are

Never heard of GGs? Snobs will say they are just a successful German marketing exercise, but they don’t know what they’re missing. German whites in the major growing regions used to be an afterthought: make the sweet wines, then ferment to trocken whatever grapes were left. Now the best grapes are used for the drys, and it shows: the wines are transformed, and are now contenders for some of the most seriously good dry whites around, at very reasonable prices. And did I mention there is not a whisper of premox?
Here a selection from some of the best growers, in varying styles:



wines Fritz Haag (1 wines)
