Tasting Notes: White Wine. 100% Riesling. A perfectly balanced and elegant Riesling combined with lively acidity and sweetness. On the palate, this Riesling Kabinett shows fine mineral notes and aromas of ripe pear, quince, and melon. A well-balanced wine for the Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.
Fleshy and plump compared to this producer's more mineral medium-sweet Kabinett, this bottling is a glorious fountain of lusciously sweet yellow peach, apple and tangerine flavors. It's still zesty and spry in texture, with riveting pinpoints of acidity that linger on the finish. ~91WE
