An absolutely gorgeous multidimensional nose of all things fruit/floral/mineral, that then in the mouth is absolutely weightless, a floating cloud of Graacher power. Its sense of airiness and intensity is pretty much amazing…..a little * awarded here.
“The 2021er Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit picked at 76° Oechsle on 80-year-old un-grafted vines and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (50 g/l). It presents a beautifully restrained, smoky, and herbal nose of anise, cardamom, mint, white peach, cassis, and dill. The wine proves superbly playful as some dynamic zest and minty notes give a great focused side to the wine. The racy finish is very pure and vibrating, with some high-pitched lime and yuzu flavors. This intense and racy Kabinett needs a couple of years to integrate its acidity and could well prove even better than anticipated at maturity. 2029-2041” 94+ Mosel Fine Wines
