Description: In addition to its modest residual sugar (by no means precluding what I would call a "dry taste"), Adam's 2010 Dhronhofberger feinherb also received longer lees contact than did its Grosses Gewachs counterpart. (Lest there be any ambiguity in label identification, this bears the A.P. #3.) Botrytis-affected fruit had for the most part already been repeatedly picked from the relevant parcels so that the healthy grapes could hang until the end of the first week in November. Palpable extract richness and subtle silkiness are combined with a ravishing sense of levity (at 11.5% alcohol); and zesty, tartly fruit-skin-like, spicy tactile impingements lend energy and invigoration to a matrix that by turns suggests white peach, apple, quince, and mirabelle alluringly mingled with rich, piquant nut oils and (metaphorically) cooling herbal essences. A faint aura of high-toned distillate and wood smoke as well as a stony, smoky, and mouthwateringly saline mineral undertones add intrigue to this long-finishing beauty that I suspect will prove fascinating and delectably versatile for at least the next 12-15 years.
