2010 Daniel Vollenweider Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Kabinett
"This is a force of nature, one of those Kabinetts that punches well above its weight. Despite the 70 grams of residual sugar, the wine is stony, rigorous and fresh. Let us all thank the 12 grams of acidity for that. If you’re not a 'numbers person,' what these digits spell out is the following: tension. This is one of those Kabinetts with 100,000 volts of electricity pulsing through its slatey veins. The palate is compact and saturating, a full force gale of green fruit and citrus that slides seamlessly into slate and a tart, ripe, polished acidity that leaves you salivating and wanting more. Says the ever-balanced Lars Carlberg: 'It's one of the best Riesling Kabinetts from the vintage.'"
