Weingut AJ Adam Dhroner Riesling Trocken 2020
The Riesling grapes are sourced from selected plots of vines (average age 45 years) around the village of Dhron. After picking in mid-October the grapes are gently pressed, then typically around half the wine is vinified in stainless steel and half in Fuder (large, traditional oak casks) - with ageing on lees.
There’s fabulous honeyed fruit ripeness, and with five months of lees ageing, the wine has a beautifully creamy, textural quality in the centre. It’s a very eye-catching wine, lean, tense and vibrant at first, opening quite exotically in the middle. Bone dry and very focussed but totally calm and approachable.
Enjoy sushi or Thai dishes with this wine.
