In a nutshell:
A dry, crisp, small production Riesling from the Dhron Valley in the Mosel.
Made by the really good, and really small (just 5 hectares of very steep vineyards) Weingut A.J. Adam run by brother and sister Andreas and Barbara, this is a Trocken, or dry, style Riesling from old vines of about 45 years from the renowned Hofberg site. Working in a minimal interventionist way the grapes are picked in mid-October and then gently pressed before half is vinified in stainless steel and the other half in Fuders (large traditional oak casks) with ageing on lees. Bone dry, lean and tense at first then opening up with riper more tropical notes, a lovely honeyed ripeness and a creamy textural quality to the body, thanks to the lees aging.
92/100 - Vinous Antonio Galloni
When to drink:
A super dry Riesling, try with sushi or Thai dishes.
