A. J. Adam takes us to Dhron, just off the much-beaten path of the Mosel river. Dhron is named for a river that flows into the Mosel. Its steep, slatey vineyards form the tributary's northern bank.

The sites are steeper and at higher altitude than most of Mosel. The wines are a little wispier and saltier. The fruit is cooler and whiter.

Adam is Dhron's undisputed star. He makes extraordinary dry Rieslings and Kabinetts from Hofberg, the top site in Dhron.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 90-92
"What about this Spätlese? Surely it confirms the talent of Andreas Adam. Of great richness (95gr of residual sugars) it is nevertheless of a sovereign balance. A superb acidity (10gr) carries the wine, gives it vitality in the mouth, a pleasurable crunch on the fruit. This wine is incredibly digestible and invigorating, with a lot of length, and an aromatic complexity in retrolfaction that never stops moving throughout the tasting. A real pleasure and very moving in the mouth with a beautiful complexity!."
