Professional reviews:

Wine Spectator: “This is bursting with peach, apricot, sweet corn and floral aromas and flavors. Sleek and silky in texture, this is racy and builds to a citrus- and mineral-infused aftertaste. Drink now through 2036.” 94/100 pts

Moselfinewines.com (David Rayer & Jean Fisch): “This was harvested on October 18 without botrytis from old vines planted in 1953. Quite restrained, flowery and smoky at first, this wine only gradually reveals a bouquet of mint, white peach and some honeyed fruits. The wine is intensely juicy and creamy on the palate with very fine exotic flavors of mango, yellow peach and spices. The finish is superbly long and very elegant. This textbook Spätlese is a great success! 2025- 2045” 93/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “The 2015 Dhroner Hofberg Riesling Spätlese comes from the warmer part of the cru and from 60+ year old vines that were picked botrytis-free in the end of October. The wine offers a super precise, fresh and intense bouquet of perfectly ripe Riesling berries intermixed with cool, crystalline-clear slate and flint aromas that give an exciting counterpoint. On the palate, this is a highly piquant and elegant, very finessed and lush Spätlese. It has a gorgeously elegant, balanced and stimulatingly salty finish. This is a picture-book Spätlese from the 2015 vintage and comes highly recommended.” 93/100 pts
