2017 A.J. Adam "Im Pfarrgarten" Riesling Feinherb Mosel

SKU #1392694

Mosel Fine Wine Review: "The 2017er Im Pfarrgarten was fermented down to off-dry levels at less than 18 g/l of residual sugar, i.e. the limits for medium-dry. Slightly reductive at first, it only gradually reveals a zesty nose of lime, grapefruit zest, mint, herbs and yellow plum. The wine is nicely juicy and creamy on the palate, where a good dollop of zesty acidity lifts up the flavors. Ripe fruits emerge in the slightly sweetish finish. This deliciously light-weighted, easy and direct wine should prove quite enjoyable as of next year. 2019-2023." (8/2018) Importer's notes: "The 4th vintage from a 53-year old vineyard in a flat-ish site by the lyric little 'Dhronbach' stream. It means 'the garden of the rectory,' suggesting a contemplative temperament, whispering to the little birds in the silver flow of water. Perhaps you think I’m being silly, but this stuff matters to me and you’d be a happier person if it mattered to you. There’s a little poem in this wine, one of those life-graces we assume, wrongly, we can do without. The wine in ’17 shows a LOT of sponti which slowly subsides to green apple, and this old-school Mosel wine is spicy and uncompromising, if not quite atavistic; it’s just a wine with two left eyes and a quirky old soul. It’s also the nth-degree of what small-batch 'natural' wine should be."
