The 2018 Dhroner Hofberg von den Terrassen is from a warm and rocky terroir normally used for Auslesen but made in the off-dry style since 2017. It displays an intense, aromatic, pure, fresh and flinty bouquet with remarkable finesse. Lush and fruity on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, charmingly round and juicy, elegant, piquant and salty Riesling with generous fruit intensity and a stimulating finish. This is a highly promising Riesling with a good portion of sensuality. Tasted in April 2019. ... More details

Sea breeze, pear, white peach and Persian melon entice the nose, then reconvene for a luscious and mouthwatering palate impression that follows into the sustained, subtly brown-spiced finish. For a warm corner of the Hofberg in an exceedingly warm vintage, this manages to come off animating and refreshing, and even though, at 11%, there is a full point more alcohol here than in the corresponding 2017, there is still lovely buoyancy, and the wine’s sweetness, while distinct, remains discreet.

A well-knit, silk-textured white, with notes of iris framing the core of pear, lemon oil and tangerine flavors. The elements are well-integrated and driven by vibrant acidity that stays persistent and focused on the inviting finish. Approachable now, but will only get better. Best from 2022 through 2030. 129 cases imported.

Varietal: Riesling

The pale skinned fruits of the Riesling grapevine have been grown in and around Germany's Rhine Valley for centuries, and contributed much to the country's wine culture. Today, Riesling grapes are grown and processed in several countries around the world, where they are prized for their ability to grow well in colder climates, and their unique flavors and characteristics. Riesling grapes produce an impressive array of wines, including fine semi sweet and dessert wines, to excellent dry white wines and sparkling varieties, all which allow the grape to shine through as a premier example of an excellent white wine varietal. One of the things which makes Riesling such a special grape is the fact that it is highly 'terroir expressive', meaning that the features of the land it is grown on can come across well in the flavors and aromas in the wine. As such, it isn't unusual to find flavors of white stone, or smoky ash-like notes in a fine Riesling alongside the more usual orchard fruit flavors more commonly associated with good white wines.

Country: Germany

As in many Old World countries, the rise of viticulture in Germany came about as a result of the Roman Empire, who saw the potential for vine cultivation in the vast flatlands around the base of the Rhine valley. Indeed, for over a thousand years, Germany's wine production levels were enormous, with much of the south of the country being used more or less exclusively for growing grapes. Over time, this diminished to make way for expanding cities and other types of industries, but Southern Germany remains very much an important wine region within Europe, with many beautifully balanced and flavorful German wines being prized by locals and international wine lovers alike. The hills around Baden-Baden and Mannheim are especially noteworthy, as these produce the high end of the characteristic semi-sweet white wines which couple so perfectly with German cheeses and pickled vegetables. However, all of Germany's wine producing regions have something special and unique to offer, and are a joy to explore and experience.
