Wine Critic Reviews:

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.

Country Germany: While the combined surface of Germany's vineyards equals out to one-tenth of Spain's, it is listed as the world's eighth-largest wine producer in the world. Most German wines revolve around either Riesling or Pinot Noir, and as is often the case in similar scenarios, these grape varietals are brought to their fullest potential. Riesling fans rejoice, as the quality of German whites is nothing short of heavenly. Whether you prefer a dryer or sweeter white, you can find an oasis or two among Germany's reputable producers. There's no better way to spend your summer than with a classic German wine or two.

Type of Wine German White: German Riesling, grown along the Rhine, is one of the most famous white grape varieties worldwide. Winemakers rarely blend this highly acidic varietal with other grapes. A bit behind Riesling, Muller-Thurgau is another popular varietal in Germany, obtained from a crossing of Riesling and Silvaner. Silvaner is the third-most cultivated white varietal in Germany.
Varietal Riesling: Riesling is a German grape varietal used to produce some of the most heavenly white wine that has ever existed. This has to be tasted to be believed, trust us. If you enjoy your white wine on the sweeter side (as many people do), Riesling wines are an essential addition to your wine cellar. Even if you normally prefer dry, non-sweet wines, you might just get converted by this piece of work.
