There's very little in the store that offers so much overt pleasure, complexity and versatility than this special Kabinett. The nose is just crammed full of juicy yellow fruit, strong petrol fumes, crunchy pulverized stone. The palate is vibrant, super fresh wonderfully balanced showing formidable acidity to offset any obvious sweetness. Few wines spark the appetite more readily than this little magic bean, have it with spicy thai, spetzle, or my favorite pairing with Double Double animal style.

I love this wine's aromatic purity, simple, real Riesling yet with spice and vibrancy. On the palate this wine has a broad density yet excellent acidity at the same time it just makes it delicious to drink the wine finishes with just the slightest bit of sweetness but oh so refreshing.
Drink from 2017 to 2018

While I generally prefer my Rieslings in Trocken (dry) style, occasionally I like to try some on the sweeter side, and this Kabinett is beyond exceptional. The finish is very tropical, with hints of mango, and pineapple, this Riesling really is a treat.

Additional Information:



- While the rest of the world has often misappropriated the name--Welchriesling, Riesling Italico, Gray Riesling and Emerald Riesling are all names applied to varieties that are NOT Riesling--this exceptional German varietal has managed to maintain its identity. Perhaps its biggest claims to fame are its intoxicating perfume, often described as having honeyed stone fruit, herb, apple and citrus notes, and its incredible longevity - the wines lasting for decades. Aged Rieslings often take on a distinctive and alluring Petrol-like aroma. Within Germany, the grape seems to do best in the warming slate soils of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. Other German regions that turn out great Rieslings include Pfalz, Rheingau and Nahe. German Rieslings are made in a range of ripeness levels. The top wines are assigned Pr├Ądikat levels to describe their ripeness at harvest. These are: Kabinett, Sp├Ątlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, Eiswein and Trockenbeerenauslese. Riesling has also achieved acclaim in France's Alsace, the only region in that country where the grape is officially permitted. Alsatian Rieslings are typically dry and wonderfully aromatic. Austrian Riesling is also steadily gaining praise and fine Riesling is also produced in Italy's Alto-Adige and Friuli, in Slovenia and much of Central and Eastern Europe. In the New World its stronghold is Australia, where it does best in the Eden and Clare Valleys. It is also planted in smaller amounts in New Zealand. In the US, winemakers are eschewing the syrupy sweet versions of the 1970s and 1980s, instead making elegant and balanced wines in both California and Washington State.


- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
