Im Pfarrgarten Riesling Feinherb, A.J. Adam
Vineyard – Location
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 30 to 65 years old and some are still ungrafted.
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.
`Im Pfarrgarten´ – the garden of the rectory – is our light version of the `in der Sängerei´ feinherb. This more flat `garden´ next to a rectory house with its 50 year old vines is a perfect match for this style of wine. The fermentation took place in steel tanks.
A light, mineral wine loaded with charm, perfect for a warm summer day to drink by the bottle.
…refreshing and playful nose of grassy herbs, spices, lime, cassis and grapefruit peel. – Mosel Fine Wines by Jean Fisch and David Rayer
