JANCIS ROBINSON MW goes to Germany for the evening to attend a Wine Rarity Dinner at the 2006 Rheingau Gourmet and Wine Festival and she discovers two wines fit to
blow apart all preconceptions about German wines: 1897 Steinberger Riesling trocken Cabinet proves that great German Riesling doesn't have to be sweet, and 1947 Assmannshuser Hllenberg Sptburgunder trocken Cabinet proves that Germany can also produce some excellent reds. Robinson concludes: It is surely significant that the two great German wines described above so eloquently vindicate the trend in modern Germany to produce dry wines from the country's greatest red and white grapes.'
