Description

This is a first time bottling for Stefan, from a parcel at the southern limit of Piesport; along with the Rosengartchen, it is his smallest Kabinett production in 2021, just 500L made. It is the most electric of the ’21s, with the highest acidity at 12.3 g/L, so not for the acid-faint-of-heart. It opens shyly on the aromatics, leading to a gorgeous sense of discrete almost tropical fruits, that are followed up with a strong and persistent ripe acidity/minerality. This is crazy good, and a bit crazy. “It is for the freaks,” Stefan added. Very cool stuff…..

“This comes very close to being a perfect Mosel riesling Kabinett because of the way it combines enormous concentration of stone fruit and mineral character with the light-footedness that makes this category stand out. Stunning finish in which peachy intensity and wet stone character are exactly matched. Drink or hold.” 96 Stuart Piggott
