Other Reviews....
The 2016 Hermannshöhle GG from Dönnhoff is once again one of the top dry rieslings of the vintage in Germany thanks to its stunning combination of concentration and finesse. The super-mineral finish tugs at your lapels trying to pull you with it into the distance. Don't resist! Good for several decades at least.

From weathered gray carbon slate, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle "GG" is excitingly pure, coolish, fresh and crystalline on the nose, where flinty scents are displayed and intermix with ripe, precise and subtle fruit aromas. This is an aristocrat! Full-bodied, intense and lush on the palate, this is a highly elegant Riesling with very fine crystalline acidity and lingering piquancy. Dense and aromatic on the aftertaste but far too young to be enjoyed today, keep it at least for another 5 years.

Discreet nose opens up to white pepper and lilies only very gradually. Creamy texture with lots buried in there. Still extremely youthful. Builds to a long finish. No excess of acidity.
