The off-dry Kabinett from the Dhroner Hofberg comes from vines that are over seventy years old, firmly rooted in the blue-grey slate of the Dhroner mountain and have seen many summers and winters come and go. The old gnarled vines produce only very small, but highly concentrated grapes. This is already evident in the beguiling stormy bouquet, which shows a wonderful smoky, stony wildness alongside lots of wild herbs. The fruit is almost drowned out and shows itself, if at all, only very quietly. On the palate, there is an ingenious interplay of fruity (very) delicate sweetness and a rough, unbridled astringency that makes the palate water. This is a great pleasure, because here you get a lot of character in the glass, the terroir of the Hofberg sticks to the glass almost like a slate fingerprint. A unique Mosel Riesling, far from the mainstream. A one-off - undisciplined and untamed - made extremely "exciting"! We love it!
