In 2014 the emphasis of the Hohenmorgen seems to have shifted slightly from the customary exhibition of fruit to a more serious demonstration of herbaceous and mineral aromas. A gentle citrus fruit plays second fiddle to an almost austere expression of earth and grindstone minerality. Compact, cool and truly dry interpretation of Riesling Grosses Gewächs.

The citrus colored 2013 Deidesheimer Hohenmorgen Riesling trocken GC comes from almost 40 years old vines and shows attractively fresh and animating lime aromas over a ripe and dense fruit core that is shaded by earthy flavors. A full-bodied, very mineral and piquant wine, this vibrant, tautly structured and persistently salty wine develops the complexity and length of a great wine.

Ripe apricot, sweet herbs and hazelnut on the nose. The sleek, supple peach fruit is kept in check by an understated yet ever-present saline backbone. Rich in both depth and elegance, this riesling finishes on a spicy note, with a twist of lemon oil.

Subdued aromas of white nectarine, quince and lemon oil. Delicate peach fruit is nicely paired with chalky acidity, which provides the wine with a firm framework. Finely balanced, deep, stylish wine with excellent spicy persistence.

Ripe apricot, sweet herbs, hazelnut and lemon oil on the seductive nose. The glossy peach fruit is kept in check by an understated yet ever-present chalky acidity. Rich in both depth and elegance, and impressively long, this is another of the great dry rieslings of the vintage.

Sweet corn and white peach abound in the 2007 Deidesheimer Hohenmorgen Riesling trocken GC. Silken in texture and impressively dense, with nut oils, subtle herbs, wafting lilac perfume, and mineral nuances mingling with its sweet fruit, this combines virtues of the richest Rieslings in this year’s Burklin-Wolf collection with those of the most transparent and buoyant. A finish of real grip does not preclude suggestions of creaminess, levity, and a somehow cooling wet stone and chalk character in its eloquent finish.

Pale golden yellow. Rich aromas of peach skin, beeswax and bay leaf.Offers excellent drive on the palate, with a flavor of apricot pit and, as with the Kalkofen bottling, an almost chalky minerality.The full-bodied finish displays surprising spiciness on the long, penetrating finish.
