The problem is of course that the wine has to prove its long term aging potential over 20 years or so, so the search may take some time, even if the wine already exists (I'm not saying it does).
Köhler-Ruprecht has made some wines that age beyond 10 years, but I would not put them quite in that class. The dry wines that excite me most from 2005, and perhaps most of all dry German Rieslings I have come across, are those 1st Gewächs wines from Keller and Dönnhoff. Keller's GMax is certainly getting close to Hune in price though... The Morstein is bigger, but perhaps less refined. Hubacker and Kirchspiel are superb too. Dönnhoff has a great dry Dellchen, a true grand cru wines, plus and even greter HH trocken, which I belive Terry is shipping to the US.
