2018 A.J. Adam Dhron Hofberg Auslese Riesling Mosel (Previously $60)

SKU #1481862 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s unrelenting mineral drive to this wildly impressive riesling, which brims with smoke, cloves, lemons, limes and crushed chalk. Unforgiving acidity here, yet this remains rich and multifariously flavorful, offering a kaleidoscope of sweetness, energy, savoriness and minerality, all molded into one majestic sculpture. Drink now or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Dhroner Hofberg Riesling Auslese was picked at 97° and 98° Oechsle between middle and late October and then fermented in stainless steel. The wine is coolish, flinty, still reductive but precise and sexy, with a concentrated, dense and pretty sweetish palate with good grip and salty piquancy. A promising 2018 that needs 10 years to gain finesse and more talents. Tasted in April 2019. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

96pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 16 19. The 2018er Hofberg Auslese, as it is referred to on the consumer label, was harvested at 95° Oechsle from clean grapes and was fermented to sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a stunning nose of cassis, pear, grapefruit and smoke, all wrapped into whipped cream. The wine is superbly elegant and refined and leaves a glorious and delicately unctuous feel of exotic fruits, a hint of earthy herbs and minerals. The after-taste is gorgeously mouthwatering and has the zesty presence of a truly cool vintage. What a stunning Auslese of auction quality! 2028-2058." (06/2019)
