Tasting Note:

The Rausch yielded material for a mere 200 lts of Spatlese in 2013, all of which has found its way into the Kabinett. Unsurprisingly this has produced a wine of intensity and complexity that belies its Pradikat level. With 9.7 grams of acidity and 59 grams of sugar, this mini-Spatlese represents stunning value for money. The few shrivelled grapes that made the blend bring a level of concentration and texture you will not see in many Kabinetts this year. Cool fresh mango notes, a touch of pineapple, some salt, this has Saar edge yet retains a beautifully silky texture. Anyone looking for a 20+ year Kabinett need look no further.
