2021 Robert Weil Riesling Kabinett (Previously $34)

SKU #1649371 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wonderfully floral and animating, but also peachy and succulent. This could almost be from the world-famous Wehlener Sonnenuhr site on the Mosel thanks to the scintillating interplay of fruit and acidity, with zero perceptible alcohol. Long, wet stone finish with tons of energy. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Inner quote mark (8/2022)

Outer quote mark The 2021 Riesling Kabinett AP #27 from Weingut Robert Weil is just a touch more reductive than the drier wines sealed under screwcap when it is first opened, so this wine definitely will want a decanting prior to serving. However, once the wine blossoms, it is lovely, offering up scents of white cherry, peach, fine minerality, bee pollen and a potpourri of spring flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, medium-bodied and nicely filigreed, with lovely intensity of flavor, good soil foundation, zesty acids and a long, complex and dancing finish. Lovely juice. The technical details on this bottling in 2021 are 9.5 percent octane, 8.8 grams of acidity and residual sugars of thirty-nine grams per liter to balance off the acids. 2022-2050+.

Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the Kiedricher Wasseros and picked earlier (at 85° Oechsle) than the dry Kiedricher, the 2021 Rheingau Riesling Kabinett is super clear, fresh and pure on the nose. Bottled with 38 grams of residual sugar and 8.5% alcohol, this is a tight, fresh and stimulatingly piquant and racy Riesling with grip and tension and bright, somewhat leafy, just-ripe fruit. Screw cap. Tasted in July 2022. Wilhelm Weil is enthusiastic about the 2021 vintage. From the end of September, he said it was possible to harvest grapes that were "healthy as a core and rich in extract," which led to "dense cool-climate Rieslings" after the three previous warm vintages (2018–2020). The striking acidity of the vintage is well buffered by the potassium stored in the grapes and allows the Rieslings to shine and dance despite their substance. This was not foreseeable in the fall. But the "enthusiasm curve" rose steeply with the tasting of the young wines in the spring, so Weil is now convinced in the summer that the 2021 vintage will be celebrated in a few years and decades as one of the great ones. For himself, it is also clear that he has not yet processed a better one. (SR) Inner quote mark (8/2022)
