2018 German Grosse Gewächse & 2017 Pinot Noir
We are delighted to release our offer of 2018 Grosses Gewächs and 2017 German Pinot Noirs.
The 2018s are tasting better and better. They have settled down and are becoming smooth and integrated, revealing the great charm of youth as well as potential for long ageing. As befits a warm year, they are rich and muscular, but they possess a vibrant balancing acidity which keeps them fresh and true to their terroirs.
2017 is a brilliant vintage for reds. They are concentrated and pure, with delightful red berry fruit. They offer excellent early drinking, and the more serious ones will give pleasure for many years to come.

2018 Frauenberg GG [47 19] (BATT42218A)
A limestone base gives generous juicy citrus notes, balanced by a lovely salty fine finish with a hint of oak.
2018 Im Obern Weinspar [12 19] (DENG32218A)
From fifty-year-old vines in limestone-gravel soil. There is always a breeze here, particularly welcome in a hot summer, not only for the vineyard workers but also to keep the wine fresh! This has cool, aromatics, with a green note underpinning the yellow fruit, and there a is lively citrus zing lasting to the delicately salty finish.
2018 Am Heiligen Berg [14 19] (DENG34218A)
From heavier soils with more clay in the limestone-gravel mix. This is a powerful wine, with intense pithy grapefruit and ripe pear and apple fruit framed by delicate floral notes, finishing smoothly on a long rich bitter stony note.
2018 Dellchen GG [29 19] (DONN08218A)
Dellchen produces the most ethereal wines in the Dönnhoff stable: there is lightness and delicacy to the exotic yellow fruit, which has a gentle silky feel. But it also has the power of the vintage, and there is a dark, slaty fine finish.
2018 Abstberg GG [08 19] (GRUN11218A)
Old vines give a smooth, silky wine with heady floral and fresh herbal notes, rich yellow fruit, a juicy ripe defining acidity and a dark stony core building to a long creamy finish.
2018 Juffer GG [24 19] (HAAG01218A)
A lovely elegant fine wine, with very juicy ripe yellow fruit and a pronounced stony minerality building through to a long salty finish.
2018 Röttgen GG (HELO11218C)
A fantastically steep terraced vineyard facing south-east, the Röttgen's weathered slate soils warm up early in the morning. The terrace walls then act like storage heaters, and the temperature remains high well into the evening. The result is a powerful wine packed with syrupy yellow peach and herbal notes, balanced by stony slaty flavours. The finish is long and very fine.
2018 Uhlen Roth Lay GG (HELO20218A)
The estate's top wine, bottled long after the others and released a year later.
2018 Hütte GG (HOVE76218A)
2018 Scharzhofberg GG [14 19] (HOVE80218A)
The Saar's most famous vineyard gives a lean, powerful wine with vibrant ripe pear fruit, juicy citrus acidity and a very salty spicy finish.
2018 Goldberg [15 19] (KNEW42218A)
From a warmer site, with a higher clay content in the soil. The fruit is rich and fat, but there is a cooling smooth stony minerality and a brisk lemony acidity that keeps it pure, lean and elegant.
2018 Hundertgulden [19 19] (KNEW46218A)
So named because of the prices it once fetched, this vineyard is made up of chalky loam on a limestone base. It is a precise, finely wrought, lean and flinty wine with fresh herb notes, vibrant citrus acidity and a long, lean and very smooth salty finish.
2018 Steinacker [18 19] (KNEW48218A)
Red soils give a herbal, crisp lemony wine with notes of fresh nettles and redcurrants to go with the ripe yellow orchard fruit, and as the vineyard name suggests, there is a powerful stony finish.
2018 Ölberg GG [50 19] (KUHL34218A)
The south-east orientation of the Ölberg ensures a lot of sun, giving an open, elegant wine with fine yellow fruit and a salty richness building to a long melting finish.
2018 Pettenthal GG [52 19] (KUHL36218A)
A dense, smoky linear wine with lovely definition: clear red and ripe yellow fruit, bright citrus flavours, a cooling green herbal note and a long salty oak-tinged finish.
2018 Hipping GG [51 19] (KUHL38218A)
A smoky, floral nose - mainly orange blossom - leads to explosive orchard fruit with racy citrus acidity and a melting core of fine stony salty fruit.
2018 Kupp Fass 18 GG [18 19] (LAUE32218A)
A fresh slaty wine of great density, with loads of juicy citrus, melting ripe apple and yellow orchard fruit, and a silky stony minerality that builds to a long and satisfying salty finish.
2018 Schonfels Fass 11 GG [11 19] (LAUE34218A)
An inviting perfumed citrus- and smoke-laden nose yields to rounded elegant fine silky fruit and a beautifully elegant flowing salty mineral finish. A gorgeous wine.
