Other Reviews....
The 2019 Riesling GG Dellchen is enormously fine and elegant on the subtle but fascinatingly complex nose that intertwines stony notes with yellow-fleshed stone fruit aromas. On the palate, this is an intense, highly finessed and elegant Dellchen with incredibly refined juiciness and great balance and purity. The finish is very long and complex but keeps the finesse and purity. Very stimulating and salty—a great Dellchen GG and one of the finest I have had from Cornelius Dönnhoff!

Ravishing bouquet of a thousand golden fruits and a staggering interplay of diamond-bright acidity and great succulence. Then, just when you think you've processed all that, along comes a monster wave of minerality, which sweeps you off your feet. But you land on the beach, deliriously happy. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification.

The 2019er Dellchen Riesling -GG-, as it is referred to on the consumer label, offers a delicately ripe and aromatic nose of pear, anise, minty herbs, grapefruit, tangerine, white flowers, and almond and coconut cream. The wine proves delicately zesty and light-weighted on the palate and leaves a zesty and linear feel in the long, smoky, and quite backward finish. It is still pretty much work in progress. It may well turn out to be even better than anticipated in a couple of years, as it develops more complexity and presence with age.
