Why do we love it?
Riesling Trocken Donnhoff 2018 is a Riesling from one of the leading producers in Germany and the world. The combination of different soils gives a wine with mineral but at the same time, fruity character that will excite the Riesling lovers.

The Donnhoff family has been in Nahe for 250 years but the big turn towards fame and absolute recognition came in 1976 when Helmut took over. Helmut Donnhoff was a "superstar" for Robert Parker who often gave him his 100pts. On the other hand, the famous wine writer Hugh Johnson considers that he was "absolutely committed to quality and a huge natural talent in winemaking". Cornelius, who learned all the secrets of Riesling from him, continues in his footsteps.

For Riesling Trocken Donnhoff 2018 the vines are not irrigated, although Nahe has a very dry climate. This forces the vines to dig deep into the ground for water and creates competition, contributing to the top quality of grapes. Vineyards with different soils are selected, volcanic, clayey, and stony, to get the different characteristics of each. It is well known that Riesling has the unique ability to express the different terroirs in the final wine, so Cornelius takes full advantage of it. The vinification is done with ambient yeasts, in stainless steel tanks and old large barrels of 1200 liters. Then, it matures on its fine lees for several months, to get extra complexity. The result is expressive and delicious, with the discreet hints of petrol that we love.

You really can't resist this wine! It just can't be done!

PAIR IT

Grilled sea bass with spicy soy sauce

  • 2 seabasses (500 grams each), with guts and scales removed
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • a handful of fresh herbs (rosemary, oregano)
  • 2 lemons or 1 orange
  • 10 g of fresh ginger in thin slices
  • Extra slices of lemon or lime for serving
  •  For the sauce
  • 2 tbsps. of olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 fresh hot pepper, in thin slices (depends on your preferences)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. of sugar

Preheat your barbecue or light the charcoal. Gut the fish, remove the scales, and wipe it well. Make 3-4 vertical, to the bone incisions on each side of the fish. Brush the fish, in and out, with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, in and out. Put in the fish's belly some fresh herbs and slices of lemon or orange. Put slices of ginger in the incisions you made earlier.

Place the fish in a baking pan. After the bbq is ready or after the grill has warmed up well, bake for 5-7 minutes and then turn it on the other side for another 5 minutes.

For the sauce, place a small saucepan on medium to high heat. Add the olive oil and when it's heated up, add the garlic and the chili peppers. Cook for 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce and sugar and allow to boil for 1 minute.

 Pour the sauce over the fish and serve with slices of lemon.
