Wine Critic Reviews:

Donnhoff's 2008 Schlossbockelheimer Kupfergrube Riesling Spatlese is explosively bright, saturating and invigorating the palate with pineapple, lemon, and distilled pit and black fruits. Tart notes of berry skin and pungent citrus zest tickle the tonsils, while the refreshing diversity of fruits and berries remains transparent to saline, smoke, nut oil, and meat stock nuances. Reflecting its name, this is certainly a brilliant flash in a coppery pan. But you can also expect it to gain and to remain exciting over at least the next two decades. Fruit from the Felsenturmchen portion of Felsenberg can achieve this sort of balance, too, Donnhoff acknowledges, but at least for this year, he remarks, it was enough to let Kupfergrube do it.

Country Germany: While the combined surface of Germany's vineyards equals out to one-tenth of Spain's, it is listed as the world's eighth-largest wine producer in the world. Most German wines revolve around either Riesling or Pinot Noir, and as is often the case in similar scenarios, these grape varietals are brought to their fullest potential. Riesling fans rejoice, as the quality of German whites is nothing short of heavenly. Whether you prefer a dryer or sweeter white, you can find an oasis or two among Germany's reputable producers. There's no better way to spend your summer than with a classic German wine or two.

Type of Wine German White: German Riesling, grown along the Rhine, is one of the most famous white grape varieties worldwide. Winemakers rarely blend this highly acidic varietal with other grapes. A bit behind Riesling, Muller-Thurgau is another popular varietal in Germany, obtained from a crossing of Riesling and Silvaner. Silvaner is the third-most cultivated white varietal in Germany.
Varietal Riesling: Riesling is a German grape varietal used to produce some of the most heavenly white wine that has ever existed. This has to be tasted to be believed, trust us. If you enjoy your white wine on the sweeter side (as many people do), Riesling wines are an essential addition to your wine cellar. Even if you normally prefer dry, non-sweet wines, you might just get converted by this piece of work.
