RATINGS

94James Suckling

...stunning kabinett that effortlessly combines the lightness of the category with ripe-peach and apricot character and vibrant minerality at the long, complex finish.

92The Wine Advocate

...bright, elegant, filigreed and beautifully flinty bouquet of crushed stones and ripe Riesling berries. Round and juicy on the fresh and piquant palate...pretty complex and persistent and, in fact, too rich for Kabinett, but it is still a very enjoyable Riesling from a very warm and dry vintage.

REGION

Germany, Rheingau

Rheingau is considered one of the finest of Germany’s great wine districts. Its 8,000 vineyard acres are planted primarily to Riesling, and the Rieslings of Rheingau are noted for their steely character. In recent decades producers have also started planted Pinot Noir, called Spatburgunder in Germany. Historically the most famous Rieslings of the Rheingau have been the very sweet Beerenauslesen and Trockenbeerenauslesen styles, but as the market for dry wines has increased, younger Rheingau winemakers have begun producing dry Riesling, harkening back to methods used before the 20th century. By 2005 nearly 85% of the Rheingau Rieslings have been dry wines.

TYPE

White Wine, Riesling, Kabinett

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
