The sense of buoyancy, sheer refreshment and transparency of the finish are marvelous, and a wealth of stony, alkaline and mouthwateringly saline notes shimmers against the background of lusciously lingering fruit.”

Professional reviews:

Vinous.com: “Ripe strawberry, pear and Persian melon are laced with smoky black tea and pungent orange peel and backed by wet stone on a haunting nose and an alluringly creamy yet brightly juicy palate. The sense of buoyancy, sheer refreshment and transparency of the finish are marvelous, and a wealth of stony, alkaline and mouthwateringly saline notes shimmers against the background of lusciously lingering fruit.” 93/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (David Rayer and Jean Fisch): “A slight reduction amplifies the fresh and citrus-driven bouquet of grass, spices and smoke. The wine is packed with intense fruity flavors and juicy yellow peach on the palate. Smoky notes of aniseed fruits bring complexity to the still rather sweet finish. There is however a good underlying structure of acidity which only waits for mingling into the fruity structure of this impressive Kabinett at maturity! 2023-2035.” 91/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “Picked at 91° Oechsle, the 2015 Dhroner Hofberg Riesling Kabinett comes from a cooler, later ripening spot in the deeper part of the side valley; it is predominantly fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine has a clear, fresh and cool bouquet with bright fruit aromas and cool, earthy flavors. Sweet, light, fresh and piquant, this is a round and aromatic, pretty rich and juicy Kabinett. It finishes with nice freshness and piquancy. This is a Spätlese from a cooler spot and it can age for 15 to maybe 20 years.” 90/100 pts
