2017 A.J. Adam Hofberg Riesling Auslese


Stuart Pigott: 98/100
Mosel Fine Wines: 95/100



Professional reviews:

Stuart Pigott (jamessuckling.com): “A great and totally original Mosel Auslese. Some serious funk here from the wild ferment, but there is also a rich chocolate and caramelized-pineapple character. Very concentrated and lush, but it is totally expressive. The huge finish deals the decisive blow. Better from 2020, and it has decades of aging potential.” 98/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (By Jean Fisch and David Rayer): “The 2017er Dhroner Hofberg Auslese was harvested at 98° Oechsle. Slightly reductive at first, it first shows a quite fresh and zesty aromatic with notes of grapefruit, rosemary and smoke before riper scents of fruits come through with airing, including peach, apricot and pineapple as well as a hint of toffee and honey. The wine is hugely creamy and still quite sweet on the palate. Yet a ripe and juicy acidity makes for a great balance as it cuts through the rich intensity of the wine. The finish is superbly long and refined as some tickly acidity (driven by grapefruit and lime) adds a sense of depth to this irresistible Auslese. 2027-2047” 95/100 pts
