Reviews & Tasting Results

Our Riesling wines are characterised by their high extract and aging potential. They mature individually. Thanks to limestone soil and an agreeable microclimate you experience „pure Riesling“ with a lot of substance and moderate acidity. Hochheim Riesling was already popular at the British Court long before Queen Victoria’s visit in the year 1850. In 1875 the wine estate was awarded a silver honorary trophy at the Erste Deutsche Weinbaukongress in Colmar. Since then, the estate has regularly won prizes at national and international tastings and attends the Weinbörse Mainz every year.

+ White Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge

Franz Michel and his winemaker Michael Bott of Domdechant Werner was anounced as the white winemaker of the year at the International Wine Challenge 2017 in London

Our main emphasis is to show the character of our terroir, the magnifinence of Riesling and our personal stylistic in our wines.

Sustainibility is our highest obligation as we think in generations and only with respect for the nature we can provide the healthy power vitality of our wineyards. We work with natural fertilization and biological plant protection. We want to harvest healthy and natural grapes in order to get an elegant and fine wine. During fermentation we interfere as less as possible and the process of fermentation is guided by temperature controll to let the yeast work in a smooth way.
Our passion for Riesling brings us to more than 20 countries worldwide and most important is a long lasting business relationship with our partners.

We are deeply grateful that our philosophy is so highly awarded in the international wine family.

Werner’s Hochheim Classic is an excellent introduction to the wines of Hochheim, with the typical spicy, earthy aspect to its yellow plum aromas and flavors. “Classic” indicates that the wine is dry and they are supposed to be uncomplicated, but if you have vines in the right places and you do your job correctly, you get some complexity no matter what -- as here. This is a fairly rich, harmonious wine that I would be happy to have as an aperitif or with food. Last digits of A.P. Nr.: 005 08. Werner’s Hochheimer
Hölle Kabinett trocken has floral aromas, followed by some volume in the mouth with incipient citric and tropical flavors, and with excellent acidity for support. The wine is fairly mineral at this point, promising to open more over the next few years, although it is most enjoyable already. Stated alcohol: 11.5%. Last digits of A.P. Nr.: 007 08. The Hochheimer Kirchenstück Sätlese trocken is a brilliant wine with direct, energetic acidity as well as some of the yellow plum of the Rheingau and overall minerality.
I’d drink 2010-2020. Last digits of A.P. Nr.: 008 08. The Erstes Gewächs Hochheimer Kirchenstück has most attractive floral, lemon blossom aromas, followed on the palate by incisive, pure lemon-lime fruit
with great balance, length, and a filigree quality. The Erstes Gewächs Hohheimer Domdechenay has a gorgeous nose -- like walking in the late spring after the rain. In the mouth, the wine shows great finesse
with layered fruit and purity, although perhaps not quite as intense as the Krichenstück. The Hochheimer Stein Kabinett halbtrocken is earthy, perhaps excessively so. The wine tastes essentially dry, as is the fashion these days with halbtrocken wines, but it lacks the charm of the Classic. Last digits of
A.P. Nr.: 019 07. The Hochheimer Hölle Kabinett is refined and elegant with yellow plum fruit and some chewiness to its relaxed, caressing body. Stated alcohol: 9.0%. Last digits of A.P. Nr.: 009 08 From a vineyard that I think edges out Kirchenstück as the finest in Hochheim, the Hochheimer Domdechaney Spätlese is attractive for it pear fruit with a little bit of cinnamon, but the rather rich body (9.0% stated alcohol, so it shouldn’t be all that rich) is a little heavy and sweet. I think your best shot with this wine is to age it 8-10 years. Stated alcohol: 9.0%. Last digits of A.P. Nr.: 010 08. The Hochheimer Domdechaney
Auslese is a prime representative of the 2007 vintage: this wine shows spice and some botrytis along with light citric and mineral elements, but all this is enveloped in the elegance and finesse of both the vineyard and the vintage, making for a wine that is astonishing easy to drink now, even though it should age well for at least a few decades. The extra finesse that normally makes Domdechenay slightly superior to Kirchenstück at Hochheim is evident here. Stated alcohol: 8.0%. Last digits of A.P. Nr.: 001
08. Importer: Chambers & Chambers, San Francisco.

+ Gold for Hochheimer Riesling in international challenge

Weltweit liegt Riesling aus deutschen Spitzenlagen voll im Trend, denn wie keine andere Weißweinsorte ist Riesling leicht, elegant, anregend mit feinen Fruchtaromen. Gerade Hochheimer Riesling – aus Hochheim kommt bekanntlich die weltweit älteste Dokumentation für Rieslinganbau aus dem Jahre 1435 - gehört zur Weltelite im globalen Wettbewerb, wie die erneuten Auszeichnungen mit Gold und Silber auf den international wichtigsten Wettbewerben bestätigen. Auf der „International Wine Challenge 2006“, dem größten Weinwettbewerb der Welt in der Welthandels Metropole London, haben drei Riesling Weine aus dem Domdechant Werner’schen Weingut „auf dem Treppchen“ gestanden:

Gold für 2004 Hochheimer Hölle Riesling Kabinett
2 x Silber für Hochheimer Riesling „Classic“ und 2001 Kirchenstück Eiswein

Sogar die traditionelle Weinbaunation Frankreich hat auf dem Wettbewerb „Riesling du Monde“ in Strassburg der Hochheimer Domdechaney Riesling Auslese aus dem Jahrgang 2003 mit einer „Medaille d’Argent“ die Ehre erwiesen.

Gerade für Winzerbetriebe, die einen großen Anteil ihrer Ernte auf den Weltmärkten vermarkten, sind die internationalen Auszeichnungen entscheidend wichtig, um die traditionelle Bekanntheit des Hochheimer Riesling rund um die Welt immer wieder zu festigen. Dabei ist interessant, dass der internationale Modetrend für Riesling noch überwiegend die elegant fruchtige Geschmacksrichtung mit dezenter Süße bevorzugt, denn keine andere Weinbauregion auf der Welt hat die Klimabedingungen, um solche delikaten, leichten Rieslingweine hervorzubringen. Daneben finden aber auch die gehaltvollen, mineralischen Rieslingweine in der trockenen Geschmacksrichtung gerade bei der jüngeren internationalen Genießergeneration Schritt für Schritt Anerkennung. Hochheimer Riesling hat auf den internationalen Märkten die große Chance, dass dank der mineralreichen Böden und dem Mikroklima – dem „terroir“ – Spitzenerzeugnisse in beiden Geschmacksrichtungen erzeugt werden können.
