SKU #1572576 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Brimming with summer fruit (white peach and cassis!) and fresh herbs, the nose pulls you inexorably into this garden of delights. Spot-on balance of juicy fruit and racy acidity on the very light and very bright palate. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (1/2022)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the original "Himmelreich" as well as the "Braunes" relatively far up the steep slope and from 80- to 90-year-old vines comes Richter's 2020 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett. Some of the grapes were picked early, but a third were picked about three weeks later. The wine was aged two-thirds in steel and one-third in cask and comes across as a round and juicy as well as racy-piquant and persistently salty Kabinett with precision and laser-like acidity. The nose is pure, exact and flinty like an Eiswein (yet not that ripe and concentrated) and lean and mineral on the grippy finish, yet it has juicy fruit, which indicates impressive aging potential. 8% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted from AP 0721 in November 2021. (SR) Inner quote mark (12/2021)

K&L Notes

92pts Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2020er Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit picked at 80° Oechsle on 80-year-old un-grafted vines and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (47 g/l). It offers a beautiful nose made of white peach, melon, pear, aniseed herbs, and smoky elements. The wine is packed with juicy and subtly zesty flavors on the beautifully light-footed palate and leaves a mouthwatering feel of peach, herbs, and spices in the long and animating finish. This beautifully airy expression of Kabinett just needs a few years of bottle aging to integrate its sweetness and develop more cut. 2030-2040." Issue 57 July 2021.
