90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark From the cool, high-elevation, gravelly Liebfrauenberg portion of the Altenberg Einzellage, while on paper high in residual sugar (at 45 grams namely) this Kabinett displays the bright citricity and consequent tension – not to mention the transparency to shimmering, invigoratingly tingling crystalline mineral impingements – that the vintage’s “Quarzit” bottling lacked. And at just 7.5% alcohol, it’s unsurprisingly feather-light. Scents and luscious juiciness of apple, lime and mirabelle are coolingly mint- and mouthwateringly salt-tinged. The vibrant finish is delightfully delicate as well as long-lasting. This was picked much earlier and at significantly lower must weight (specifically 83 Oechsle) than was the “Quarzit.” (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
