Hochheimer Hölle Riesling Kabinett Trocken 2012, Domdechant Werner

Germany / Rheingau

Andy's Tasting Notes

The nose is fruity with stony minerality that continues on the palate with lime, grapefruit and passion fruit notes. Quite full and rich and not at all aggressive – lovely fruit and length.

Price per bottle £16.85

Producer Info

The other great estate of Hochheim and with a much longer history in the town than Künstler, the current incumbent is the 7th generation of the Werner Michel family to make wine here. Acquired by the family in 1780, the word “traditional” seems almost inadequate to describe the set-up, from the magnificent manor house set amongst the vineyards as they slope majestically southwards to the river Main to the status and bearing of Dr. Franz Werner Michel, formerly of Geisenheim University, first President of Wines of Germany, spokesman for the VDP in Rheingau and champion of the purity of Rheingau Rieslings.

The wines are, unsurprisingly, excellent, combining soaring fruit, racy acidity, fascinating complexity and unmistakable terroir expression.
