Riesling Hofberg Grosses Gewachs A. J. Adam 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lively aromas of apricot, lemon oil and mint. Bright peach pit flavor with bracing acidity animates the palate. Finishes crisp, clean and persistent..." IWC 01/12 "The sense of density here is palpably evident, and the striking, almost rough-hewn enhancement of smoky and stony mineral tones – like an earthy eruption, assuaged by glycerin-richness – impressive. But don’t look for juicy refreshment or charm, let alone the vivacity, levity, or sheer elegance that accrued to the corresponding feinherb bottling. Apple and rutabaga, squash and lemon, fennel and sage take me back to the flavors of this year’s village (“Dhroner”) bottling, but with greater diversity and depth. Long on fruit pit piquancy and adamant minerality, this robust Riesling should be utterly intriguing to follow...91" WA #199 02/12
