AJ Adam im Pfarrgarten Riesling Feinherb 2021 is a glorious drop. There are irresistible citrus aromas of lime and grapefruit with a background of white spice. The palate matches the nose with the abundance of citrus zipping around the palate. This combined with the refreshing zesty acidity ensures that, despite residual sugar levels of just under 20g/l, the wine has a textured yet fresh finish.
AJ Adam im Pfarrgarten Riesling Feinherb, with its residual sugar, can work with a bit of heat in your food. The refreshing nature alongside the sugar makes this a great curry wine. Try it with seafood currys for the ultimate treat. All that said this is a German wine so if there is pork on your menu then this wine will match in many ways. Why not have some Asian Spiced Pork Belly, or spicy schnitzel.

About the Vineyard and Winemaking
The grapes for this wine come from part of the famous established Hofberg vineyard where the vine age is between 30 to 50 years old. These are planted on the flatter, lower part of the hill around the ancient stone rectory building which gives this wine its name, Im Pfarrgarten.
The grapes are all hand-harvested and put through a thorough selection process both in the vineyard and upon arrival in the winery. A.J. Adam employ a minimal intervention approach and use only natural yeasts. One fermentation is complete the wines are left on their fine lees for extended periods increasing texture and complexity in the final product. There is an Old World, New World combination of stainless steel tanks plus traditional oak fermentation vessels ranging in size between 1000 and 500 litres.
A really lovely drinkable wine. No need for food to accompany it. A medium wine perfect for those summer evenings. Will be buying again.
