10.95

Stuart Pigott: 93/100
Wine Advocate: 91/100

“Powerful and crisp, this wine has nothing whatsoever to do with the category of estate riesling it ostensibly belongs to. Serious concentration and structure here. A long mineral-herbal finish that hits you like a tidal wave.”

Professional reviews:

Stuart Pigott (jamessuckling.com): “Slightly funky from the wild ferment, but it also has tons of orange blossoms and candied citrus. Powerful and crisp, this wine has nothing whatsoever to do with the category of estate riesling it ostensibly belongs to. Serious concentration and structure here. A long mineral-herbal finish that hits you like a tidal wave. Drink or hold.” 93/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “Bottled with 11% alcohol, the 2017 Dhroner Riesling Trocken displays a white-golden color and clear, well-concentrated fruit and slatey notes. On the palate, this is a textured, lush and fruit-intense Riesling that is light but round and reveals a persistent, well-structured finish. The 2017 is less crystalline than the 2018 but is concentrated and complex on the salty-piquant finish. Tasted in April 2019. (SR)” 91/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (By Jean Fisch and David Rayer): “The 2017er Riesling Trocken is made from younger (5-18 year-old) vines in the Dhroner Hofberg and was fermented with ambient yeasts. It offers a superbly spicy and smoky nose of anise, mint, white peach, greengage and ginger. An intense zesty and spicy feel runs through the wine on the open and animating on the palate. A hint of tartness emerges in the finish which still needs to integrate. The after-taste is racy, herbal and intense. This will particularly please lovers of racy and fully dry wines. 2020-2025”
