Very refined peach, rose hip and wild berry on the nose. Stunning concentration, elegance and finesse make this one of the stars of the vintage on the Nahe. The supermineral finish almost literally takes your breath away. Drink now or hold.

From slate and porphyry soils, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Norheimer Dellchen "GG" is very pure, precise and mineral on the elegant, subtle nose, where ripe seed fruit aromas are displayed. Very sensual! Full-bodied, rich and round, this is a highly elegant, intense and dense Riesling with a persistent finish. Very aromatic and sensual, but it needs some time to gain even more finesse.

Non-showy nose – very discreet actually with light floral notes. Solid mouthful of still-quite-chewy earthy fruit. The opposite of exhibitionistic. A slow burner?
