RATINGS

92Wine Spectator

Features rich, savory herbal notes that flank an unctuous core of ripe apple and melon flavors. Supported by firm acidity, this is balanced and lushly juicy, crackling on the finish with tarragon cream.

90Wine Enthusiast

Zesty grapefruit and tangerine aromas mingle with a waxy lanolin note on the nose of this intensely fruity, yet deeply complex kabinett. It's rich in stone fruit and mango flavors, but honed with steely minerality and citrus acidity that linger long after each sip.

PRODUCER

Von Schubert

Von Schubert is an estate in the Mosel region of Germany. A thousand years ago it was owned by a Benedictine monastery, and later, under the name Grunhaus, it became privately owned. In the late 19th century the owner’s daughter inherited the estate and after marrying Conrad von Schubert, the estate’s name came to include the “von Schubert.” The estate is still owned and operated by the von Schubert family. Von Schubert makes numerous Rieslings.

REGION

Germany, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer is Germany’s most prestigious wine region and it is comprised of the vineyards surrounding the Mosel River and its tributaries, the Saar and Ruwer. This region is the northernmost of Germany’s primary viticultural areas, located on the western edge of Germany just above the northeast corner of France. Internationally Mosel Rieslings are considered among the finest white wines in the world. In Germany and elsewhere, the region’s name is often shortened simply to Mosel, and in fact since 2007 Mosel has been the formal name of the region for viticultural purposes. The references to Saar and Ruwer were dropped for ease of marketing. The distinctively crisp, mineral tasting, acidic Rieslings produced in Mosel are attributed partly to the region’s slate soils and extremely vertiginous vineyards. Many vineyards are on 60 to 80 percent cent inclines along the three rivers. Riesling grapes represent more than half of all the grapes grown in Mosel, followed by Muller-Thurgau, a white wine grape related to Riesling, and Elbling, an indigenous white wine grape often used for sparkling 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.
