Hofmann, Riesling Trocken ‘Vom Roten Stein’ 2014, Germany
Too many people still have a prejudice against German Riesling based on outdated memories of the ocean of Piesporter and Leibfraumich sold in the 1970s. German wines, especially Riesling, can have extraordinary quality and more and more – like this one – are being made ‘Trocken’ or, dry. From a young winemaker with experience of making wines around the world it is bursting with vivacious fruit on nose and palate, but has that steely precision that shows its true class.
