The 2018 Dhroner Hofberg Riesling Réserve is the first of its kind since the 2012 vintage. Based on perfectly ripe grapes from a plot planted n 1953 and aged on the lees until May 2020 prior the unfiltered bottling, the 2018 Hofberg Réserve offers clear, deep, pure and fresh, very intense and concentrated fruit in a very complex bouquet with crunchy and crystalline slate aromas. Piquant and fresh on the palate, this is a full-bodied, very complex, crystalline and elegant Riesling with a crunchy, salty-piquant and aromatic finish. This is an impressive wine, though I'd tend to keep it for another year or two to get the best out of it. 13% alcohol. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes have been grown in and around central Europe for centuries, and over time, they became the lasting symbol of south Germany's ancient and proud wine culture. Whilst the reputation of German wines abroad has in the past been mixed, the Germans themselves take an enormous amount of pride in their wineries, and Riesling grapes have now spread around the globe, growing anywhere with the correct climate in which they can thrive. Riesling grape varietals generally require much cooler climatic conditions than many other white grapes, and they are generally considered to be a very 'terroir expressive' varietal, meaning that the features and characteristics of the terroir they are grown on comes across in the flavors and aromas in the bottle. It is this important feature which has allowed Riesling wines to be elevated into the category of 'fine' white wines, as the features of the top quality bottles are generally considered to be highly unique and offer much to interest wine enthusiasts.

Country: Germany

If German wine has had something of a bad reputation in the past, it may well be the fault of the fact that for a long time now, the Germans have simply kept all the best produce to themselves. Visit any town or village in wine producing regions of Germany, and you'll be faced with a stunning array of extremely high quality wines, each matched with local dishes and full of distinct character and flavor. As white wine production makes up for about two-thirds of all Germany's wine industry, this is by far the most visible and widely enjoyed type of wine, but one should not overlook the quality and range of rosé and red wines on offer from this fascinating country. In particular, the Spatburgunder wines (the German name for Pinot Noir) are generally of an exceptionally high quality, being full of dark, intense hedgerow fruit flavors and exciting spicy notes with a silky smooth finish.
