A Kabinett of effortless balance and wonderful lively red apple and tangerine fruit. Whilst possessing as much sugar as just about any of their previous Kabinetts, the acidity here is such that the finish comes across seemingly dry. A hugely moreish and focussed Kabinett of great freshness.
A great Nahe estate that was started by Werner Schönleber in the 1960s with just two hectares. Today the estate comprises 14 hectares, mainly Riesling, on the slate and quartzite soils of the Halenberg and Frühlingsplatzchen vineyards. Intense vineyard work and spontaneous fermentation in old oak casks together with ageing in steel vat conspire to produce intense, long lived Nahe Riesling that combines floral, charming qualitites with intense minerality. For the last five years, this estate has been perfoming to is maximum, rivalling Germany’s very greatest producers.
