Hofberg
The Grand Cru Hofberg is one of the greatest Mosel vineyards. In 1868 the vineyards of this hill were classified by the Prussians 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 un-grafted.

Tasting Notes

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.

Review:
A village-typical nose and polished palate deliver lime, grapefruit and winter squash pungently tinged with struck flint and quarry dust. The juxtaposition of nutty and positively vegetable flavors with bright citrus is fascinating and generates positive tension. There is a palpable sense of density, but 7% alcohol guarantees levity. Smoky, stony, alkaline and piquantly citrus seed notes serve for stimulating, gum-clinging counterpoint on a brightly refreshing finish.
