A.J. Adam Riesling Trocken

2015 Riesling trocken

Vineyard – location
The Grand Cru Hofberg is one of the greatest Mosel vineyards. In 1868 the vineyards of this hill were classified by the Preußen as an extraordinary place to make great Rieslings. The main part of the vineyards in our region are situated on the Mosel river. But not the Hofberg. It`s a lovely quiet side-valley on the Dhron river with weathered Devonian slate in mixture with quartzite. Riesling vines are today mainly 30 to 65 years old and some are still ungrafted.

A perfect place to vinify remarkable wines. Even though young, the wines often show a striking exotic fruit, subtle spice, wild slate aromas and a finesse of acidity.

Winemaking notes
The Riesling trocken is derived from our young vineyards in the Hofberg (newly planted vines as well as vines up to 25 years). It has been fermented in steel-tanks.
