Description

This is usually his most popular/highest scoring Kabinett, from the upper reaches of the Juffer hillside. It is super mouth filling in its broader, spherically expansive sense of more exotic fruits and accompanying minerality. The contrast between the more linear Wehelener and the broader/spherically expansive Juffer is terrific. In 2020, this was his top scoring Kabinett (see below). Stefan’s father always said that the Juffer wines need a year+ to show well, that they are rarely early flatterers. On the day that I tasted it in June, it was very promising, but was still settling in. I trust Stefan when he tells me that this one will make its way, that it has all that it needs to strut its stuff in time…..

“”Wonderful nose of orange blossom, ripe melon and fresh basil. Ripe and generous for a riesling Kabinett, but this also has all the freshness and delicacy we expect from this category, plus great originality. Then comes the very mineral and lime zest finish. Drink or hold.” 96 Stuart Piggott
