A deep, quiet and subtle but very complex and generous bouquet of ripe fruits and finely crushed stones (Rotliegend). Full-bodied, rich and intense, with immense concentration and substance, this is a powerful yet firmly structured, elegant, very long and complex Riesling with ripe tannins and a long, refined and textural finish. The acidity is saline and ripe, very elegant and completely interwoven with body, fruit and tannin.

The 2021 Höllenpfad Im Mühlenberg GG comes from a two-hectare parcel with the oldest (50+ years) vines, The first production of a Großes Gewächs wine was in 2017. Yields are capped at 40 hl/ha. Manual harvest undertaken with fermentation in seasoned barrels and stainless steel tanks.

2021 was another excellent vintage in Germany, considered a return to classic form after a few hot vintages. Donnhoff have succeeded with an incredible array of wines with excellent, elegant acidity and a sleek mineral character.

Famous, steeply sloping vineyard in a small side valley of the middle section of the Nahe River. The “Höllenpfad” (“Path to Hell”) name is an old one, likely referencing both the vineyard‘s steep slope as well as the unique color of the red sandstone. The surrounding landscape is bathed daily in the rich, warm light of the evening sun as it reflects off the hillside‘s distinctive red soil. It‘s also not hard to imagine that the word „Hell“ might have been uttered by many a winegrower after a particularly laborious day on these steep slopes. The weathered warm sandstone of the Rotliegend strata lends the wines their inimitable character. Grapes grown here tend to be very small with intense, nuanced aromas; the resulting wines are elegant with a spicy mineral fruit and excellent aging potential.
