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.
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)
