Description

This was the first Kabinett served, and man oh man, what class in a glass. My note: “An absolute caress of a wine, silky/gossamer in texture, with beautiful balance between its fruit/acidity. Silky and salty….outrageously delicious.” I think that this is the “sleeper” in the range, simply because people don’t know the Grafenberg, which also lies at the southern limit of Piesport. It may be the most elegant of all of the ’21 Kabinetts in its overall sense of harmony, at least on the day that I tasted it. A little * awarded here. 11.4 g/L acidity for you geeks out there.

“A stunning Mosel riesling Kabinett with stacks of yellow peach and red vineyard peach aromas. Very exciting interplay between racy acidity and concentrated and juicy fruit on the sleek palate. Enormous wet stone minerality at the super-energetic finish. Drink or hold.” 94 Stuart Piggott
