Hofmann Perlwein Fritz Müller Rheinhessen
Fritz Müller is a sparkling wine made by Jürgen Hofmann. It is based on Müller-Thurgau, an old grape variety, which is used far too often for quite banal wines. It's often referred to as Rheinhessen's answer to Prosecco, but that actually falls a bit short. It's also quite light and rather fruity with very moderate acidity, but despite all the comparability it is still a typical grape variety. Lots of apple, a little apricot, slightly spicy with floral notes, and hardly any acidity. Pearls beautifully, but not for too long. Perfect as an uncomplicated aperitif or mixed with Mondino or the likes.
Carolin and Jürgen Hofmann run the two wineries of their families together. The Willems-Willems winery from Konz an der Saar, as well as the Hofmann winery from Appenheim in the Rhine-Hesse region. Typical for Saar, Willems-Willems stands for acid-fresh, mineral Riesling, whereas Hofmann from northern Rheinhessen is more famous for Burgundy varieties and Sauvignon Blanc, although you should not forget about the Riesling, which is quite charming, too. Both wineries are known for there great 'Lagenweine', made of hand-picked grapes that grow in the best locations, as well as very good terroir-related 'Gutweine'. And year after year, they know to impress with the really outstanding quality of their entry-level wines. The varietal estate wines are self-explanatory, confidently vinified, and always at a high level.
